I disagree with Scully. According to my research Bakken has to do with Beech trees. My family started out as Viking's by the name of Bakken who left Norway with Marching Rollo and ended up in Normandy and became Bacon's who went to England with Wm. the Conqueror and became Bacon's in English history etc. Bakken means those who dwell in the Beech forest. Pigs also loved the Beech nuts they ended up as Bacon as well.
