Blick Name Meaning

English: unexplained; possibly from Middle English bleik, blek(e) ‘pallid’, ‘sallow’ (from Old Norse bleikr ‘pale’) with alteration of the vowel, although Reaney suggests it may be a nickname derived from Middle English blikie(n) ‘to shine or gleam’ (from Old English blician). Jewish (Ashkenazic): origin uncertain; possibly from German Blick or Yiddish blik ‘glance’, ‘look’, and based on some now irrecoverable anecdote. German: Prussian variant of Blek, a nickname from Middle High German blic ‘shine’. German: short form of the Low German occupational name Blickslager ‘tinsmith’. Compare Bleck. German: from a short form of the Germanic personal name Bligger, Blickhart, based on blic ‘gleam’, ‘shine’, later ‘pale’.
