Babcock Family History
Babcock Name Meaning
English (Lancashire): although the first element of this name would suggest it is derived from the Middle English personal name Babb (see Babb ) apparently it is a post-medieval form of Badcock from the Middle English personal name Badecok a pet form of Bade (see Bade ) + the diminutive suffix -cok. There is no reason why a Middle English Babbecok a pet form of Babb (itself a pet form of Barbara ) should not have existed but evidence has yet to be found.
