The possible roots of the Carrick family name may be from the ancient Strathclyde people of the the Scottish/English Borderlands. Carrick may also be of local origin, referring to those who lived in or near the place called Carrick in Ayrshire. Carrick comes from the Gaelic word Carraig, meaning rock or rocky place, and may also be derived from the the personal name, Craig.
