The word "dux" which means leader, comes from the word "ducere" which means to lead.

In Northern England, particularly Yorkshire, Duke was used as a short form of the name Marmaduke, which ultimately harks back to the presence of Irish-speaking Vikings in the region, and the original form MÁEL MÁEDÓC.
