Meaning & History

An occupational surname for someone who sold pork, from Middle English and Old French bacun or bacon, meaning 'bacon', which is ultimately of Germanic origin. Can also be derived from the Germanic given names Baco, Bacco, or Bahho, from the root bag-, meaning 'to fight'. The given names mentioned in the latter definition were common among the Normans as Bacus, of which the oblique case was Bacon.
