Origins of 'Badger'?[edit]

I have recently expanded and added images to this article. The online England and Wales birth records state the birth/registration area as simply Sturminster, when there is more than one (Sturminster Newton, Sturminster Marshall, Sturminster Common) so I purposely have not wilkilinked it. When checking the map, a nearby village is Bagber.

As children from small localities may have travelled to schools in other nearby places, it occured to me that a school nickname could have been Bagber Goss, which is not far from 'Badger' Goss. One of my former workmates from a village was known as 'Cotgrave Pete'...--Rocknrollmancer (talk) 20:02, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
