Bankekind is a locality situated in Linköping Municipality, Östergötland County, Sweden with 405 inhabitants in 2010.[1] Bankekind was earlier called Svinstad (appr. Pigtown) but changed its name because of the pejorative connotations. It is known for its 13th-century church and the beautiful lake Svinstadsjön.

Bankekinds härad (Bankekind Hundred) was a hundred of Östergötland in Sweden.
