Bick Name Meaning

Dutch and German: from Middle Dutch and Middle High German bicke ‘pickaxe’ or ‘chisel’, hence a metonymic occupational name for a stonemason or someone who made or worked with such tools. German: from a pet form of the personal name Burkhart. English: of uncertain origin, perhaps from the Old English personal name Bicca. Alternatively, Reaney suggests it may be from Middle English bike ‘nest of wild bees or wasps’ and hence a metonymic occupational name for a beekeeper. Compare Bicker. Jewish (eastern Ashkenazic): German or English spelling of eastern Yiddish bik, Polish byk, or Russian byk, all meaning ‘ox’ or ‘bull’. This may be a translation of Shor.
