Auker Family History
Auker Name Meaning
Americanized spelling of Dutch Acker. English: variant of Alker, which has two possible origins: either from a Middle English survival of the Old English personal name Ealhhere meaning ‘altar army’; or a habitational name from Altcar in Lancashire, named from the Celtic river name Alt (meaning ‘muddy river’) + Old Norse kiarr ‘marsh’.
