Name Meaning

English: from Middle English stok(ke), stock(e) ‘tree trunk, tree stump’ (Old English stocc). In some cases the reference may be to a primitive footbridge over a stream consisting of a felled tree trunk. The surname may be topographic, for someone who lived by a tree stump or footbridge, or habitational, from a place so named, such as Stock Green and Stock Wood in Inkberrow (Worcestershire) or Stokke in Great Bedwyn (Wiltshire). Compare Stocker .

English: variant of Stoke .

German and Dutch: from Middle German stoc ‘tree, tree stump’, hence a topographic name equivalent to 1 above, but sometimes also a nickname for an impolite or obstinate person.
