Last name origins & meanings:
- English: topographic name for someone who lived near an oak
tree or in an oak wood, from Middle English oke ‘oak’, also
used in the singular in a collective sense. In some cases the surname
may be a habitational name from minor places named with this word,
such as Oake in Somerset. It is possible that it was sometimes also
used as a nickname for someone ‘as strong as oak’.
