Meaning:Barley farm
Beric is a surname and boy’s name of Old English origin. It derives from the words bere (barley) and wic (settlement), and was probably used to denote a granary located outside a village. The name has many variants, including Berwick, Berwic, Berick, Barrick and others. A habitational surname, it’s related to several placenames across Britain, including Berwick-on-Tweed, which is located partly in England and partly in Scotland. Other places include the villages of Berwick in Kent and Shropshire, Berrick in Oxfordshire, Barwick in Norfolk, and more. Fans of Game of Thrones may recognize it as the name of Beric Dondarrion, who was killed five times and brought back to life. A suitably impressive namesake for baby!
