is Argyle just basically nothing more than simply a surname?
or does it have some other meaning?

Most names have some meaning buried deeply in the past. Argyle is a region in Scotland. Its historic meaning, apparently, would be "land of the Gaels".

It is originally a place-name from western Scotland.
It has a number of other uses, but all of them - including the surname - are derived from the name of the place.
