An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


A Viking family in ancient Scotland was the first to use the name Hakes. 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."

The Scottish settlers spread out along the fertile land of the east coast of what would become the United States and Canada. They and many of their children went on to play important roles in the forging of the great nations of the United States and Canada. That heritage has been recovered by many in this century through Clan societies and other Scottish historical organizations. Archival documents indicate that members of the Hakes family relocated to North American shores quite early:
