Other Origin(s):British, Greek
Yorick is a masculine name of Scandinavian origin with roots that span as far and wide as England and Ancient Greece. Meaning “earth-worker” and “farmer,” this wonderfully rural title ultimately stems from the Greek Geṓrgios. Scandinavian and Anglo-Saxon communities adapted Yorick from the older Jorck, a form of George. The phrase “Alas, poor Yorick!” may spring to the minds of William Shakespeare fans from his play, Hamlet. An idyllic name with a literary flourish, Yorick makes a charming appellation for your little one.
