Pack Name Meaning

English (Kentish): from a medieval personal name, Pack, possibly a survival of the Old English personal name Pacca, although this is found only as a place name element and appears to have died out fairly early on in the Old English period. The Middle English personal name is more likely to be a derivative of the Latin Christian name Paschalis (see Pascal). Jewish (Ashkenazic): metonymic occupational name for a wholesale trader, from German Pack ‘package’ (see Packer). Anglicized form of Dutch Pak.
