    Name Meaning

    Welsh: perhaps sometimes from Welsh ap ‘son’ + Rickett .

    English: nickname from Middle English priket, the most common sense of which was ‘buck, roebuck’, especially one in its second year (modern English pricket). The word is a diminutive of prike (Old English prica) ‘point, spike’, also ‘goad, nail’, so other unrecorded senses of priket cannot be ruled out. Probably related to Pritchett .
