Name Meaning

English: habitational name from a place in West Yorkshire, probably named in Old English as ‘enclosed wood’, from loc(a) ‘enclosure’ ( see Lock ) + wudu ‘wood’. It seems likely that all present-day bearers of the name descend from a single family which originated in this place. There is another place of the same name in Cleveland, first recorded in 1273 as Locwyt, from Old English loc(a) + Old Norse viðr ‘wood’, ‘brake’, but it is not clear whether it has given rise to a surname.
