Not sure what you are asking for.

Hodgins is a version or corruption Hodgekin(s) which itself is derived from Hodge a "pet" name for Roger.

So Hodgekin is a child of Hodge or Roger.

Hodge can also be a nickname from Hog(ge) a pig or (local) Somerset Hogge Hogget(s) = Sheep/Lambs.

The name Hodge is found a given name in medieval times. Roger was popular with the Normans who might have introduced it to England.

It of course then found it's way to North America.

I hope this is some help.
