English (mainly Suffolk): descriptive nickname from Middle English blok, bloke, usually meaning either ‘pale, wan, pallid’ (Old English blāc), but perhaps sometimes ‘black’ (of hair or appearance). The name could be interchangeable with the equally ambiguous Black and Blake . Alternatively, it may be an nickname derived from Middle English blok(ke), bloke ‘block (of wood)’, perhaps for someone thought to be stupid or someone who made or used wooden blocks.
