Name Meaning

English:1. from Middle English basket ‘basket’, hence a metonymic occupational name for a basket maker, or perhaps, as Reaney suggests, for someone who carried baskets of stone to a lime kiln. In some cases, it appears to have been a topographic name for someone who lived at a house distinguished by the sign of a basket (who was therefore probably a basket maker). 2. habitational name for someone from Bascote in Warwickshire, probably so named with an unattested Old English personal name Basuca + cot ‘cottage’.
