Meaning & History

Variant of Stoke and Stohoke

Exact origin unknown, but most likely started in the southern region of Ireland in County Kerry or County Cork. Although the name is a Norman-Irish surname it is believed to be native to Ireland, like other Irish-Norman surnames such as Fleming, Walsh, Burke, or Fitzpatrick. Surname meaning unsure and is most likely a collaboration between the Irish Gaelic and Old English language, so it has no definite translations. The surname is also very common in Scotland.
