About the Pick surname

The surname has three ancestral areas I know of for sure, and possibly a fourth one, each in a different area.

1. A Jewish surname in the area near the mutual borders of Poland, the Czech Republic and Germany, in parts now mainly Polish, in Silesia.

2. A German, mainly Lutheran surname, centered around the coast of the North sea.

3. An English surname, thought to be a variant of Peck, mainly Methodists.

4. A distortion of sefardic Pico, originally from Catalonia, Spain (conjectural, I have seen no proof).


Balázs Déri says :

Some of these Pick families as well as Pikey travellers in Brittania may be related to Pik-Raj tribe of Iranian Gypsies who might once have belonged to Rajput cast .
