German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): occupational name for a purser, or for a purse-maker, from an agent derivative of Middle High German seckel, Yiddish zekl ‘purse’, ‘pouch’. English: from Old French seculier ‘secular’, hence a status name for a member of the secular clergy, or a nickname for someone without religious inclination.
