Origins Available: Dutch, German


The distinguished German surname Bakken is derived from the German "Beck," meaning "baker," and was first borne as an occupational name.

Bakken Early Origins



The surname Bakken was first found in East Prussia and Livonia, where the Bakken family came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as numerous branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some of which were located in other countries. Through the acquisition of these estates as well as their important contributions to society, the family successfully elevated their social status.
