The name Pickles has a long Anglo-Saxon heritage. The name comes from when a family lived in Haworth, Yorkshire. The surname Pickles originally derived from the Old English word Pightel. Pickles is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties.
