Spike

Spike is an English word referring to a very large nail or a surge in power, and is often used as a nickname than an actual name. It’s also an English surname, either originally derived as a nickname for a tall, thin person, or perhaps derived from Latin spica meaning “ear or a head of grain”. It derives from Proto-Indo-European *spey- (sharp point, stick).

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
