Name Meaning


habitational name from Hackney in Greater London, named from an Old English personal name Haca (genitive Hacan) + ēg ‘island, dry ground in marshland’.

perhaps from Middle English hakenei (Old French haquenée), an ambling horse or mare, especially one considered suitable for women to ride; perhaps therefore a metonymic occupational name for a breeder or keeper of such horses and short for Hakeneyman. This surname has also been found in Scotland since medieval times.
