Origen: Normando. The name Hicks is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from the son of Richard. In Old English, patronyms were formed by adding a variety of suffixes to personal names, which changed over time and from place to place. For example, after the Norman Conquest, sunu and sune, which meant son, were the most common patronymic suffixes. In the 12th and 13th centuries, the most common patronymic names included the word filius, which meant son. By the 14th century, the suffix son had replaced these earlier versions. Surnames that were formed with filius or son were more common in the north of England and it was here that the number of individuals without surnames was greatest at this time. The name Hicks in Ireland is usually of immigrant origin having been introduced into the Province of Ulster by settlers who arrived from England and Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century. It is in the Northern Counties as well as in County Dublin that the majority of descendants bearing this name can still today be found.
