Bacon Meaning & Etymology

This most interesting surname has two possible interpretations, both of Germanic origin. It may be an occupational name for a pork butcher or someone who prepared and sold cured pork, from the Old French, Middle English "bacun, bacon", bacon, ham (of Germanic origin). Another source, and the one I prefer, says that the name derives from the Germanic personal name "Bac(c)o", "Bahho", from the root "bag", which meant to fight, which was common among the Normans in the form "Bacus", "Bacon".  So it would not be incorrect to think that the name was probably introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066.
