Virgo Name Meaning
English: of uncertain origin. The surname coincides in form with Latin virgo, genitive virginis ‘maiden’, from which is derived (via Old French) modern English virgin. It is possible that the surname was originally a nickname for someone who had played the part of the Blessed Virgin Mary in a mystery play. Alternatively, it may have been a nickname for a shy or girlish young man, or possibly ironically for a lecher.
