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


HAKON.  Manx.  A form of Old Norse Haaken (q.v.), meaning "high kin," from haa "high" and kyn "kin."  Also see Haagan, Haaken, Haakon, Hacun.

    One of the first kings of the Isle of Man was Hacon or Hakon, a name which the dictionaries define as having meant high kin.  In this etymology ha is evidently equated with high and con or kon with kin, but it is equally likely that Hakon or Haakon meant originally uch on the high one.  In Cornish the adjective ughan or aughan meant supreme:  the Icelandic for queen is kona, and there is no more radical distinction between king and the disyllabic kween, than there is between the Christian names Ion, Ian, and the monosyllabic Han. (Archaic England, Bayley, 1920)
