Name Meaning

Northern English: nickname for someone with dark hair, Middle English blakelok, from Old English blæc ‘black’, ‘dark’ + locc ‘lock (of hair)’. Although blake might mean either ‘dark’ or ‘fair’ ( see Blake ), the meaning ‘dark hair’ is the most probable since this name contrasts with Whitlock .
