Collopy Family HistoryRecorded in many spelling forms including Collip, Collop, Collup, Cullip, Cullop and Cullup, occasionally de Cullip, and with the probably extinct diminutive form of Cullopin, this is English, but as Colloby and Collopy or occasionally O' Collopy, it is Irish. Whether the two are in anyway associated, is unproven. Certainly both have claimed unusual origins. According to the late Professor P H Reaney, the English surname means "an egg fried on bacon", and hence was an occupational nickname surname for a inn keeper or similar, one who prepared hot food.
