English: perhaps a variant of Carrick or Carrack, a habitational name probably from Castle Carrock (Cumbria), which is earlier recorded as Castel Carok. The placename derives from British castello- ‘castle, camp’ (a borrowing from Latin castellum ‘fort’) + a word related to Welsh caerog ‘fortified’.
