SOCRATES => SOK-RAT = ZOEK-RAAD / -REDE= seek reason/ rationality/ counsel/ advice
al-Kindi, a well-known Arabic philosopher, introduced and tried to reconcile Socrates and Hellenistic philosophy to an Islamic audience, referring to him by the name 'Suqrat'. (wiki/Socrates)
=> just like I said: Soeck Raedt!
So his name actually meant philosophy.
English: 'sook' (seek, search)
Dutch: 'soek' (zoek)
English: 'read', rationality, reason, counsel, advice
Dutch: raad, rede, rationaliteit
Or... zoek (het) rad = seek (the) wheel

With the words Sok- red for Socrates , bear in mind the closeness of the two word Sac-red , and Sec-ret... These may fall in line with Higgins theory ...
Creative idea, ID, but sacred seems to be derived from sacer (holy),
and secret from se-cernere (to separate oneself).
Higgins inspired me too.
"Almost all the latter part of my life has been spent
unlearning the nonsense I learned in my youth"
