Origins Available: Dutch, English, German


The Hak name derives from the Middle Low German word "ha-ke," Dutch "haak," which means "a hook." The name may have been a nickname for someone with some deformity in a hook shape; or perhaps an occupational name for someone who made or used hooks.

Hak Early Origins



The surname Hak was first found in Holland, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in South Holland, a province of Holland, the most crowded province of the Netherlands. The principal cities are Rotterdam, Leyden and Shiedam. Noted is the famed castle of Teilengen where Jacqueline of Bavaria is buried. In their later history the surname became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.
