LOCKETT Family History

This interesting surname is of early medieval English origin, and is a diminutive of the male given name Luke, itself deriving from the Latin "Lucas" or the Greek "Loucas", translating as "man from Lucania". Lucania was a region of south east Italy, that was perhaps originally named in an Italic dialect with a word meaning "bright", "shining". St. Luke the Evangelist is the patron saint of doctors and also of painters, and the name was often given by a craftsman to his son. The name appeared in the 12th Century as "Lucas" but a century later it was well-established in the English form "Luke"...
