QUICK Family HistoryThis interesting name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and has a number of possible interpretations. The first of these is from the Old English pre 7th Century word "cwic", Middle English "quik", alive, lively, given originally as a nickname to an agile or lively person. Secondly, the surname may be topographical in origin, given to someone who lived by a kind of vegetation named from the Old English "cwic", lively, such as couch grass, known as "cwice" in Old English; the aspen (tree), which has leaves that tremble as if they were alive, known as "cwictreow"; or the poplar tree, widely used to make quickset hedges, the "cwicbeam" in Old English.
