Origin of last name

STARKEY : 1: English: habitational name from a lost or unidentified place probably in Lancashire. This English surname has been established in Ireland (Dublin) since the 14th century.2: English: variant of Starkin itself perhaps from an unrecorded Old French personal name Starkin a pet form of ancient Germanic names beginning in Stark- ‘strong’ such as Starc(w)ulf and Starcher both of which appear in 1086 as names of Domesday Book tenants in East Anglia: Starcolf (Norfolk) and Starker (Suffolk). However no medieval evidence for Starkin as a personal name or a surname has been found. An alternative possibility is a derivation from an unrecorded Middle English starking ‘strong one’ (see Stark) but in the absence of any medieval evidence this is highly conjectural.3: Altered form of German Starke written thus to preserve the second syllable.
