Is Bob Bogle related

gkaplan:

I have read Mr. Bolgle's biography and have followed his writings for many years. I am confident that the Bob Bogle in the link is not a relative of our own Jack (John) Bogle.

No, he's not related to Jack. Apparently you overlooked this part of the story at the link you provided (my bold emphasis):

He is survived by his wife, Yumi; his children, Gary, Mike, Paul, Kathy, Randy and Brandon; his brothers, Clarence, Dennis and Curtis; his sister, Sybil; his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He could be a distant relative. I don't think Bogle is that common a name.

Sorry, I though you meant a member of his IMMEDIATE family.

It's not a rare surname. I have an idea that it might be a regionally important old East Coast family. Experimenting with Anywho in the area you'd expect turns up on 16 Bogles in Philadelphia, but "over 100" Bogles in Bryn Mawr, PA, over 100 in Valley Forge, over 100 in Haverford, over 100 in King of Prussia.

Click, click, click... It appears to be a Scottish name.

It may mean a goblin.

An introduction to one edition of Frazer's Golden Bough, mentions that Frazer's mother's maiden name was Bogle, and says "the surname Bogle turns up with fair regularity in Caribbean history since Robin Bogle, in the eighteenth century, had emigrated to the West Indies where he started a sugar plantation."

Ramblings through Google Books turn up scraps; a book about Shakespeare says "Pug in Old English, and Bogle in Scottish, are equivalent to Puck." There are multiple references to "bogles" in Sir Walter Scott's Rob Roy. One book says a bogle is "a freakish spirit, who delights rather to perplex and frighten mankind than either to serve or seriously to hurt them." Good to know.
