Meaning & History

Variant form of Oelke via its variant form Ulke. This particular form is strictly masculine in West Frisia. Also, this name should not be confused with Dutch uilke (although uiltje is much more common) meaning "little owl".

Known bearers of this name include the Dutch former soccer player Uilke "Oeki" Hoekema (b. 1949), the Dutch sport shooter Uilke Vuurman (1872-1955) and the Dutch writer and poet Theun de Vries (1907-2005), who carried the name as a middle name.
