Last name origins & meanings:

  1. English: nickname for a man with some fancied resemblance to a he-goat (Old English bucc(a)) or a male deer (Old English bucc). Old English Bucc(a) is found as a personal name, as is Old Norse Bukkr. Names such as Walter le Buk (Somerset 1243) are clearly nicknames.
  2. English: topographic name for someone who lived near a prominent beech tree, such as Peter atte Buk (Suffolk 1327), from Middle English buk ‘beech’ (from Old English bōc).
  3. German: from a personal name, a short form of Burckhard (see Burkhart).
  4. North German and Danish: nickname for a fat man, from Middle Low German būk ‘belly’. Compare Bauch.
  5. German: variant of Bock.
  6. German: variant of Puck in the sense ‘defiant’, ‘spiteful’, or ‘stubborn’.
  7. German: topographic name from a field name, Buck ‘hill’.
  8. Emanuel Buck came from England to Plymouth Colony in the 1640s and in 1647 settled in Wethersfield, CT.
