Many cultural groups lived in the German states in medieval times. Each had its own dialect and traditions, and unique variations of popular names. Low German, which is similar to contemporary Dutch, was spoken in Westphalia. German names are characterized by additions such as regional suffixes and phrases that tell something about the origin or background of its original bearer. Further contributing to the variation in German names was the fact that there were no spelling rules in medieval times: scribes recorded names according to their sound. The recorded spelling variations of Stuck include Stock, Stocken, Stocker, Stok, Stocks, Stokel, Stocke and many more.

First found in Rothenburg, where the name Stock made a great early contribution to the early feudal society which shaped the development of Europe. The name Stock became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the widespread tribal and national conflicts, each group striving for power and status in a continually changing territorial profile.
