Ancestrial history of the Pilkenton name in Sweden

My last name is Pilkenton. My father told me that our ancestors are from Sweden. And when they came to America,when I don't know, there last name was longer than
what it is now. So Pilkenton had a few more letters, that I assume. The last name was to long and hard to pronounce, so it was shortend. But how could I find out about my ancestors
in Sweden, like what was the original name and such. Do I still have a family there now?
