Hanks Family HistoryThis interesting name has two possible origins. The very earliest recordings from the eleventh to the fourteenth century derive from 'anki' - a Norse-Viking personal name probably introduced in the 8th century and meaning 'the son of arn', as in Hank of Oxford in 1280, in the reign of Edward 1 (1272-1307). However, it is generally the case that most name holders have a 'Flemish weaver' origin, with 'Hank' being a Flemish nickname for John as in Ralph Hanks of Gloucester in 1642, without a full genealogical survey there is no sure way of telling which is the origin.
