Tucker Origin and Meaning

The name Tucker is a boy's name of English origin meaning "fabric pleater".

Tucker has more spunk than most last-name-first-names, and also a positive, comforting ("Tuck me in, Mommy") feel.

Tucker got something of a preppy image via bow-tied conservative TV commentator Tucker Carlson, and quite the opposite from writer/blogger Tucker Max, author of the #1 best-seller I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell. Tucker Crowe is a character in the Nick Hornby novel Juliet, Naked.

Love this name!! Changing the first letter as F to tease is definitely a concern, but its so masculine, cute, fun, and handsome at the same time.
