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


Since the Anglo-Saxons had originally come from the German Rhineland, their language was similar to the dialect of that region. Thus the Anglo-Saxon and German name Waldock, both come from the same root words, from the Old High German "wald" for wood and "ecka" for corner or "eiche" for oak.

Waldock Early Origins



The surname Waldock was first found in Germany, where the descendents of Widukind III, Count of Schwalenberg (1116-37) named themselves for the Castle of Waldeck, acquired around 1150.

Waldock Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Waldock include Waldock, Waldeck, Walduck and others.
