Name Meaning

English and Irish (of Norman origin): nickname from Old French, Middle English beket ‘small beak’ (a diminutive of Old French bec ‘beak or mouth’), perhaps with reference to someone with a small beak-like mouth or a prominent nose (compare Beck 4), though the Middle English word appears to have had a wide range of applications denoting ‘pointed objects’, including ‘corbel, kind of arrow, kind of bird’, and ‘kind of fish’. This surname is also found in Ireland, especially in Antrim.

English: habitational name from any of the places called Beckett in Berkshire and Devon. The former is named with Old English bēo ‘bee’ + cot ‘cottage, shelter’; the latter has as its first element the Old English personal name Bicca.

Altered form of Bequette , a surname of French origin.
