The probability of the slavonic Pelikan to Peloquin is almost absolutely nil. The disparity of languages is so extent as to render that probability non existent.
The name Peloquin is at least traceable to the 1100's ;it was a name and not surname used by some lesser nobles of l'Ile Bouchard a suburb of Chinon. Acharie de Marmande had sons one of whom was Peloquin I and two generations later another Peloquin II pops up
Family names were non-existent atthe times.
This can be read in the Cartularies of Noyer,the daily journal of the Abbey ,written in Latin.
