SPARKS Family HistoryThis unusual and intriguing name is of Old Norse origin, and represents a rare survival of an Old Norse byname, "Sparkr", adopted into Olde English and taken into the Middle Ages as a hereditary surname. The name derives from the Old Norse "sparkr, spraek", lively, sprightly, vivacious, and was given originally as a nickname to one thought to be of a particularly lively character. The surnames Sparks and Sparkes are the patronymic forms of Spark(e), the "s" being a reduced form of "son of". Early examples of the name include: William Sperc (1202, Lancashire); Ralph Sparke (1221, Suffolk); and Robertus Spark (1379, Yorkshire)...
