Origin of the name HÄCKE.
Etymology of the name HÄCKE.
Meaning of the baby name HÄCKE.


HÄCKE.  Swiss.  Possibly a form of Danish Hagan (q.v.), meaning "spear, weapon."  But Yonge thinks it more likely to be related to Gothic Egica (q.v.), rendered "formidable," or "terrible."  Both names go back to the Teutonic root eg/ec "terror." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).

From the Old High Germ. ecca, Mod. Germ. ecke, Ang.-Sax. ecg, edge, sharpness, cognate with Lat. acies, &c., and from the root found in Sasc. ag, ac, to pierce, I take the forms ag, ac, eg, ec, widely spread in proper names.  And I also include the forms hag, hac, though Old Norse hagr, handy, useful, might be suitable.  Grimm, however, explains the name Hagen as "spinosus."  Still it must be admitted that the varied forms of the group suggest the probability of an admixture of roots.  SIMPLE FORMS.  Old German Ago, Acco,... Old Norse Haki.  English Agg, Ague,...  Mod. German Acke, Egge, Ecke, Hacke,... (The Teutonic Name-System &c., Ferguson, 1864)
