On topographical grounds this name cannot reasonably be connected with OE cēap , 'market,' with Scandinavianised initial consonant. A pers. name is far more probable. There is an OSwed p.n. Kæplinge which Hellquist (ON på -inge 86) connects with the pers. name *Kappe assumed by Lundgren-Brate (146) to lie behind certain Swedish p.n.'s. A mutated derivative Kæppi formed from the name would explain the forms of Kepwick.The possibility then is that the name means 'Kæppi's vik' or 'nook in the hills.'
