Switzerland, which is renowned for both its beauty and its political neutrality, is the glorious birthplace of the distinguished surname Baecker. Before the late Middle Ages, people were known only by a single name. However, as the population increased and travelers set out on their journeys, it became necessary for people to adopt a second name to identify themselves. Many people, such as the Baecker family, adopted the name of their feudal occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Baecker was an occupational name for a baker. Further research showed the name was derived from the German word beck, which means bake.
