Dr. Reaney didn't cite a source he used on Tukka.  If we knew where
he found it then we would know what books to search.  Since a citation from
Reaney and
Wilson is enough for registeration I would let sleeping dogs lie on this

He may base this conclusion on the Old Danish Tuki (which sounds like
a Norseman's remark when he just bit into a week old pastry.)

I would be curious if anyone finds it in the Old English but I would be
hesitant to add more to commentary without knowing where Reaney's
explanation come from.

>[Name] Tukka: The entry actually reads "Tukka a pet form of the Old Norse
>Þorketill." It is mentioned as an Anglo-Scandanavian name which means it
>could be Old Norse or Old English. Kirk: R&W gives Kirk as a header only.
>The 1209 form is atte kireke which means at a church. Still, I suspect the
>name is registerable.
