Meeks is one of the names derived from the families of the ancient Dalriadan clans of Scotland. It is derived from timid person. Meeks is a nickname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. Nicknames form a broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, and can refer directly or indirectly to one's personality, physical attributes, mannerisms, or even their habits of dress. The surname Meeks comes from the Old English word meek, which means humble or merciful.Spelling variations include: Meek, Meeke, Meeks, Meik, Meech, Meach, Mekie and others.First found in Fife where they were seated from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Scotland.Some of the first settlers of this name or some of its variants were: Francis Meeke settled in Virginia in 1663; along with John and William; Thomas Meeke settled in Virginia in 1741; John Meech settled in Salem in 1629.I found this here: [[]] I'm not sure if any of it's right or has to do with your background/meaning of your maiden name tho.
