• Baack - North German: either from a reduced form of the Germanic personal name Baldeke (a short form of any of the compound names with the first element bald 'bold', for example Baldewin) or from Middle Low German baec, bake 'pork, bacon', hence a metonymic occupational name for a butcher or pig farmer. See Back. [DAFN, vol. 1, p 77].
