Paddick is a surname of English origin, later spreading to other English language countries. There are several origin theories: all may be true as there are distinct groupings of Paddicks across England.The first group, from the Somerset, Dorset and Bristol area, is thought to derive from the Old English paddock meaning toad. In medieval England, paddock was a nickname applied to anyone who was considered mean or spiteful, and the progenitor of this group is thought to have been a French merchant called Jean le Pedoc who lived in Bristol in the early 14th century.
