Hake History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: German, Scottish


The Viking settlers of ancient Scotland were the first to use the name Hake. It was a name for a crooked person. A broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, nickname surnames referred to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character. There were two senses in which this nickname was used. The first was for a person with a crooked back: for a humpback. The other way in which this name was used was for a person with a crooked sense of morals: a crook. This nickname was originally derived from the Old Norse word haki which meant "hook" or "something crooked."
