    Name Meaning

    English: from an Old English personal name, Burgheard, composed of the elements burh, burg ‘fort’ (see Burke ) + heard ‘hardy, brave, strong’. The name was reintroduced into Middle English by the Normans in the forms Bou(r)chart, Bocard.English: possibly also from a Middle English personal name Burcard, Burchard (Norman Burcard, Old French Burchard), which was imported by the Normans and derives from ancient Germanic Burghard (in the form Burkhard this was a very popular medieval German name; see Burkhart ), cognate with the Old English name above. In France this gives rise to the surname Bouchard , Bouchart, but evidence for its use in Norman England is difficult to pin down and modern surnames in Burch- often have a different origin altogether.English: variant of Birkett , a spelling commonly found in northern England.
