    Name Meaning

    English: topographic name mostly found in southern and midland England, for someone who lived near a church, or possibly an occupational name for someone who worked at a church, such as a verger or sexton, from Middle English chirche ‘church’. The word comes from Old English cyrice, ultimately from medieval Greek kyrikon, for earlier kyriakōn (dōma) ‘(house) of the Lord’, from kyrios ‘lord’. Compare Kirk .
