Oak Name Meaning
English: topographic name for someone who lived near an oak tree or in an oak wood, from Middle English oke ‘oak’, also used in the singular in a collective sense. In some cases the surname may be a habitational name from minor places named with this word, such as Oake in Somerset. It is possible that it was sometimes also used as a nickname for someone ‘as strong as oak’. Indian (Maharashtra): Hindu (Brahman) name of unknown meaning.
