Name Meaning

English (Lancashire and Yorkshire): from the Middle English personal name Duket. This may sometimes have been an early Middle English pet form of an Old English Ducc(a), but was more often a pet form of Marmaduke, especially in Yorkshire (see Duke ). Marmaduke itself is from Irish Maol Maedóc ‘servant of Maedóc’, Maedóc being the name of prominent Irish saints of the 6th and 7th centuries.
