Name Meaning

There has been some confusion with Cocke .2 Irish and Scottish: usually identical in origin with the English name, but in some cases a reduced Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Cúg ‘son of Hugo’ ( see McCook ).3 In North America Cook has absorbed examples of cognate and semantically equivalent names from other languages, such as German and Jewish Koch .
