Meaning & History

The name is most likely Anglo-Saxon or early medieval English in origin.

It's possibly a variant form of the surnames Bloke or Blagg, which are derived from the Old English pre 7th Century adjective blok(e), bloc, blac, "pale", "fair", "shining" which were used as nicknames for someone considered to be of a noticeably pale complexion, or with very fair hair.

Alternatively, it's possible that the name is a variant of the surname Block, which is from the Middle English term bloc, or "to block", and that it is an occupational surname for one who blocks, such as a shoemaker or bookbinder.
