The name 'cooke' comes from the Old English word 'coc: to cook. It should be remembered that Scots is a branch of English. I wonder if the German surname 'Koek' is related?

Thanks for all the information. My last name is Cook while my best friends in England spell it Cooke. My grandmother stated once to me my surname is German.
I'm Irish, English and Scottish, so it's no surprise that my last name originated from somewhere around there. Our last name changed from Cook to Cooke a while ago, but it was for a different reason other than Civil War or it originally being Cooke. We had an ancestor that proposed to a woman, but she refused, saying that she wanted to have a more exciting last name. So he changed the spelling of his last name from Cook to Cooke, and she was satisfied. They then got married. Happy ending :) Strange story, but it's interesting to know when and how the spelling got the way it is for our family.
I'm an Irish Cooke, probably anglicised from MacDhabhoc (pron: MacGowak). There are also MacCuag's who are anglicised the same. There are indigenous Cookes as well as Cookes of direct English origin in Ireland. There are also Cooks (without the "e"), common in the north of Ireland of scottish or English origin.
The surname "Cooke" is both Scottish and Irish. Be proud to have either...I can trace back to both!
Yes Cooke is an Irish name, i am Irish and so is my family.
@Audrey, I am Irish decent. Have you any further information on the Irish Cookes ? Please.
