The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Haker has been recorded under many different variations, including Hacher, Hatcher, Hatchers and others.
