    Name Meaning

    German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): from Middle High German vlec(ke), German Fleck ‘patch, spot’ or Yiddish flek, of varied application. Bahlow suggests that this may be a metonymic occupational name for a user of patches in repairing shoes, clothes, or utensils, or a habitational name from a place called with this word. In some parts of Germany this was the term for a type of round, flat loaf; the surname could therefore have arisen as a metonymic occupational name for a baker. In some cases the Jewish name was probably ornamental.English (Northumberland) and Scottish: nickname derived from flecked ‘pied, spotted’, which is on record since 1377; the noun fleck ‘skin blemish: freckle’ is not recorded till 1596, but may well have existed earlier. Alternatively, a metonymic occupational name from Middle English flek(e) ‘hurdle’ (Old Norse fleki), for a maker of hurdles.English: perhaps a shortened variant of Flecknoe, from the place so named in Wolfhampcote, Warwickshire.
