Name Meaning

English: from Middle English pe, pa, po ‘peacock’, with the later disambiguating addition of cok ‘male bird’, hence a nickname for a vain, strutting person or for a dandy. In some cases it may be a habitational name from a house distinguished by the sign of a peacock. This surname is established in Ireland also.
