    Name Meaning

    Scottish: locative name probably from Beaquoy in Birsay (Orkney), according to Clouston, who says ‘[t]here was certainly a family of Beaquoy of Beaquoy, and the odal lands of the Baikies, afterwards of Tankerness, certainly lay in the near neighbourhood. ’ Black suggests, however, that it may originally be from the old manor of Baikie in Angus ( Beaqui, in 1565), and transferred to Orkney. Marwick records the Orkney place-name as Beaqui in 1492, Beaquoy in 1500.
