Name Meaning

English (Gloucestershire):perhaps from the Middle English personal name Sad(d)oc, of uncertain origin. The Old Testament name Zadok is formally possible (Greek Sadōk, from Hebrew zedek ‘justice’). Since it was the name of the high priest who anointed Solomon (1 Kings 1: 45), it may have been adopted as a baptismal name by clerical families in medieval Europe, but no evidence has been found for this.perhaps a habitational name from a lost or unidentified place called in Middle English as Shadok or Shatok, either from an unrecorded Old English scēaduc ‘little boundary’, or from one of two Old English compounds scēad + āc ‘boundary oak’ or scēat + āc ‘corner oak’. A name of this type + Old English hyrst ‘wooded hill’ is possibly attested in the Kent placename Shadoxhurst, recorded in the 13th century as Shattokeshurst, though the first element might alternatively be the personal name in 1 above.
