1878 · St. Mary's Episcopal Church is Built

Name Meaning

1 English: from the Old English byname Draca, meaning ‘snake’ or ‘dragon’, Middle English Drake, or sometimes from the Old Norse cognate Draki. Both are common bynames and, less frequently, personal names. Both the Old English and the Old Norse forms are from Latin draco ‘snake’, ‘monster’ ( see Dragon ).2 English and Dutch: from Middle English drake, Middle Dutch drāke ‘male duck’ (from Middle Low German andrake), hence a nickname for someone with some fancied resemblance to a drake, or perhaps a habitational name for someone who lived at a house distinguished by the sign of a drake.3 North German: nickname from Low German drake ‘dragon’ ( see Drach 1).
