Puckett Name Meaning
English (Dorset): of uncertain origin; perhaps a variant of Pocket(t), from a diminutive of Anglo-Norman French poque ‘small pouch’, hence a metonymic occupational name for a maker of purses and pouches or a nickname. Alternatively it could be from a diminutive of Middle English pouk(e) ‘evil spirit’, ‘puck’, ‘goblin’.
