The Eke surname was created from one of several place names in Germany. Most of these were compound names containing the "Eiche" roots, which means "oak."

Eke Early Origins



The surname Eke was first found in Germany, where since medieval times the name Eich was closely associated with the district's most dynamic historical developments. Being prominent in social affairs, the family formed alliances with other distinguished families during the turbulent events of the feudal era.
