Medieval Dutch diminutive of feminine given names that contain the Germanic element hild meaning "battle", such as Hildegonda and Mathilde. Also, since -ken is a diminutive suffix that was primarily used in the Middle Ages and has since been replaced by the more modern -ke, we can actually say that Hildeken is the medieval variant of Hildeke.
