The English surname Pike, also found in Ireland and Scotland, is a topographic name for someone who lived by a hill with a sharp point, from the Old English term pic meaning ‘ point, or hill,” which was a relatively common place name element. The name may also be an occupational name for a medieval foot soldier who used a pike, a weapon consisting of a sharp pointed metal end on a long pole. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Aluric Pic, which was dated 1066, in the Domesday Book, Devon.
