Name Meaning

1 German: from Middle High German schalk ‘servant’, hence an occupational name for a servant or, more specifically, a jester. Later the word came to be used as a term of reproach, ‘knave’, and some cases of the surname may reflect this use.2 Dutch: from the Germanic personal name Scalco, a pet form of compound names formed with -schalc (see 1).
