The surname Haenke can be derived from three possible root words. In each instance, the name would have originated a patronymic name inspired by the personal name of the father. Firstly, Haenke can come from "Hanek," a Slavic short form for the name Johannes, from the Hebrew meaning "gracious gift of God." Or the name may come from a diminutive of the personal name Heinrich, from the Middle High German for "home-rule." Or it may derive from a number of ancient Germanic names beginning with the Old High German element "Hagan" meaning "enclosure." In this last case, the surname Haenke may also have been applied as a locative name, inspired by a geographical feature near where the bearer resided.

Haenke Early Origins



The surname Haenke was first found in Silesia and Lusatia, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation which would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in the local social and political affairs. Early mentions of the name include Bartlome Hanngg, a resident of Ravensburg in 1480, and the Hanke family from Rehme who were granted a blazon of arms. Jacob Hennecke also known as Hencken or Hanke was a mayor in 1525. Hans Hanckin lived in Hochdorf in 1685, and Cord Hancke and his son Johann Hinrich Hanke in Rehme in 1665 and 1675.
