De Bock Name Meaning
from de bok ‘the he-goat’, applied as a nickname for a man thought to resemble a he-goat, or, alternatively, a metonymic occupational name for a goatherd. Debrabandere suggests that the name is also possibly a patronymic from a personal name that was reinterpreted as bok ‘he-goat’, ‘buck’.
