    Name Meaning

    English: nickname from Middle English havoc, havek, hauk ‘hawk or falcon’ (Old English hafoc). It may have been given to a professional falconer, to someone of a savage or cruel disposition, or to someone who held land by providing hawks for his lord, as in an instance from 1130, where Ralph Hauoc owed the royal Exchequer two ‘girfals’ (i.e. gyrfalcons or hawks).English: topographic name for a ‘(dweller in) the nook or corner’, from Middle English halke (derived from Old English halh + the diminutive suffix -oc).English: possibly also a survival into Middle English of the Old English personal name Hafoc, which was originally a nickname from the word ‘hawk, falcon’. It seems to have died out of use as a personal name by c. 1250.
