Flight Family History

Recorded as Flight, Flighty, Flightey, Flights, (English) and Flieg, Fliege, Flieger (German), and possibly others, this is a surname of Germanic origins. It would seem to derive from the pre 7th century Anglo-Saxon 'fliegr' meaning to fly, and was probably given as a nickname to a fast runner, such as a courier or messenger, one whose job was to cover the ground as quickly as possible. Nicknames form one of the largest groups of medieval Eurpoean surnames and this would seem to be a good example of the genre.
