An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Pickrel surname is derived from the Middle English word "pykerell," meaning "young pike;" as a name, it is thought to have evolved from a nickname for a sharp and aggressive person, or perhaps as an occupational name for someone who caught or sold these fish.

Pickrel Early Origins



The surname Pickrel was first found in Norfolk, where the name appeared in the late 12th century. The name undoubtedly originates from the middle English word pykerel, meaning a young pike, but the original significance of the name is uncertain. Pike are extremely vicious fish, and so the name may have belonged to someone with a nasty, short-tempered or violent disposition. Another possibility is that the name was occupational in origin referring to one who fished pike for a living.
