Origins Available: English, Irish


Haukin is a name of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from the Old English personal name Hafoc, which continued to be in use until the 13th century. The surname Haukin was originally derived from the form Havec and the addition of the diminutive suffix -in, which forms Havek-in. The name Haukin has also been popularly regarded as a pet form of the personal name Henry.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Toujours pret
Motto Translation: Always ready.
