Name Meaning

English: metonymic occupational name for a baker, from the Middle English term cocket-bread, denoting a high-quality leavened bread, second only to the wastell or finest bread. It has been suggested that this bread may have derived its name from Anglo-French cockette ‘seal’, having supposedly been marked with the seal of the King's Custom House, though there is no supporting evidence for this.
