Braddock Name Meaning
English: topographic name for someone living by a notable broad oak, from Old English brad ‘broad’ + ac ‘oak’, or a habitational name from a minor place so named, such as Broad Oak in Symondsbury, Dorset. Braddock in Cornwall (Brodehoc in Domesday Book) may have this origin; the second element may however be Old English hoc ‘hook of land’, ‘hill spur’.
