    Name Meaning

    English (Lancashire): although the first element of this name would suggest it is derived from the Middle English personal name Babb (see Babb ), apparently it is a post-medieval form of Badcock, from the Middle English personal name Badecok, a pet form of Bade (see Bade ) + the diminutive suffix -cok. There is no reason why a Middle English Babbecok, a pet form of Babb (itself a pet form of Barbara ), should not have existed, but evidence has yet to be found.History: James Babcock settled in Portsmouth, RI, in 1642.
