ORIGIN OF SURNAMES
So far, the origin has not been identified to be from any single family, but there appears to be multiple beginnings in Western Europe, and predominately Germany and Switzerland in the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries. Names with similar spellings and sounds have been found among other nationalities including English and Norwegian. The surname spelled as Mock has also been seen in a few Chinese American families.
MACK AND MOCK
The name of Mack in America is often traced to New England and ultimately from Scotland, England or Ireland. This group usually pronounces the name as Mack as in Mack Truck. or Big Mack. This New England group is not included in this study. It is of interest that the Mack Truck Company was started by a German family from Mount Cobb, Lackawanna Co, PA, near Scranton, and illustrates the change in pronunciation that can occur.

The name of Mack which in German is pronounced as Mock is also seen in American Palatine immigrants, many who originally arrived in Pennsylvania and later moved to other states, and especially throughout the Midwest and South.
In Germany today, as evidenced by the frequency of occurrence of names in telephone directories, the name of Mack occurs more than eight times more commonly than the name of Mock.
