Last name origins & meanings:
- English: variant of Roke, a topographic name for someone
who lived near an oak tree (see Oak), from a misdivision of
Middle English atter oke ‘at the oak’. Roke in Oxfordshire and
Rock in Worcestershire are named in this way, and so the surname may be
habitational in some cases.
- English: possibly a variant of Rock 1.
