Name Meaning

1 English: topographic name for someone living by a pointed hill (or regional name from the Peak District (Old English Pēaclond) in Derbyshire), named with Old English pēac ‘peak’, ‘pointed hill’ (found only in place names). This word is not directly related to Old English pīc ‘point’, ‘pointed hill’, which yielded Pike ; there is, however, some evidence of confusion between the two surnames.2 Possibly also Irish: reduced form of McPeak .
