El apellido HACKETT fue introducido durante el siglo XII en Irlanda por colonos de origen normando, cuyos descendientes crearon lazos de parentesco por matrimonio con familias irlandesas nativas y así quedaron completamente integrados a la sociedad irlandesa, adoptando el apellido Haiceid en los Condados de Kilkenny y de Kildare.

Origen: Irlandés. The Strongbownians added their own naming traditions to the eastern region of Ireland to which they arrived. The impact of this new tradition was not extremely disruptive to the pre-existing Irish tradition because the two had many similarities. Both cultures made significant use of hereditary surnames. And like the Irish, the Strongbownians often used prefixes to build patronymic surnames, which are names based on the given name of the initial bearer's father or another older relative. Strongbow's followers often created names that were built with the prefix Fitz-, which was derived from the French word fils, and ultimately from the Latin filius, both of which mean son. They also used diminutive suffixes such as -ot, -et, -un, -in, or -el, and occasionally even two suffixes combined to form a double diminutive such as -el-in, -el-ot, -in-ot, and -et-in, to build patronymic names. The surname Hackett is derived from the medieval given names Hack or Hake. These English names were derived from the Old Norse name Haki, which is a cognate of the English name Hook and was originally given to someone with a hunched figure or a hooked nose. Before being imported to Ireland, the surname Hackett was chiefly popular in the western midlands of England. The Gaelic form of the name Hackett is Haicéid. First found in county Kilkenny, where they had been granted lands by Strongbow for their assistance in the invasion of Ireland in 1172.
