Etymology of the name HAAKON.
Meaning of the baby name HAAKON.

  

HAAKON.   Norwegian.  The same as Old Norse Haaken (q.v.), meaning "high kin," from haa "high" and kyn "kin."  Also see Haagan, and Hacon.

    King Eirik Magnusson had no sons, and his brother, Duke Haakon, succeeded him on the throne.  Haakon was not in Bergen when the king died, as his marriage to Euphemia, daughter of Gunther of Arnstein, Count of Rupin, had just been celebrated at Oslo, but when he received the news, he hastened to Bergen, where he was proclaimed king, August 10, 1299... (History of the Norwegian People, Gjerset, v.1, 1915)
