Etymology

From Czech háček (little hook), from hák (hook) + diminutive suffix -ek, similar to English hatchet (Hatch + diminutive suffix -et).

Hatch comes from French hatch, from Old French hache in which it has come from the Frankish happjawt, which is related to Czech háček, and also the origin of hat.

Compare also hajék (Hair hook, Hair wedge) (ék).[1]
