Name Meaning

1 English: occupational name for a cook, a seller of cooked meats, or a keeper of an eating house, from Old English cōc (Latin coquus). 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 .
