Meaning of the baby name GARRICK.


GARRICK.  English name having several possible origins:
    1).  Transferred use of the English habitational surname, meaning "from the wasteland," itself a form of French Garrigue (q.v.), from Provençal garriga ("wasteland"). (The Huguenots, &c., Smiles, 1880)
    2).  "Spear ruler."  From Old English gár "point of an arrow or spear; arrow, spear, dart, javelin, missile," and rice "mighty, powerful, rich, wealthy." (A Dictionary of the Anglo-Saxon Language, Bosworth, 1838).
    3).  Of Cornish origin, meaning "rock."  See Taylor's note below. 
    Usage:  America, Australia, Cornwall, England.
    Garrick Hagon, an English actor.  Garrick Utley, an American TV journalist.  Garrick Ibbotson, an Australian rules footballer. (Wiki)

... Cornishmen now speak English, and have forgotten that the name of Garrick signified a "rock" in the old Cornish speech.  Even names of undoubted Anglo-Saxon or Scandinavian origin cannot usually be explained off-hand from the resources of modern English... (Names and Their Histories, Taylor, 1896).
