Altered form of northern French Tacquet or Taquet: nickname from a diminutive of Old French tache ‘hook, buckle, loop; distinctive mark’ (see Tache ). Altered ending reflects the Canadian and American French practice of sounding the final -t. See also Tacket , compare Tackitt .
In some cases also Scottish: possibly a variant of English Tuckett . The surname Tackett is very rare in Britain.
History: The ancestor of the great majority of the American Tacketts was Lewis (Louis) Tacquet(te), a Huguenot born in France, who arrived in VA shortly after 1686 from England. His descendants also bear the surnames Tackitt, Tacket, Tackette, and Tackkett.
