First name origin & meaning:

Old English: Settlement on the bluff

First name variations: Hut, Hutan, Huten, Hutin, Huton, Hutun, Hutyn

Last name origins & meanings:

  1. English: from the popular medieval personal name Hudde, which is of complex origin. It is usually explained as a pet form of Hugh, but there was a pre-existing Old English personal name, Hūda, underlying place names such as Huddington, Worcestershire. This personal name may well still have been in use at the time of the Norman Conquest. If so, it was absorbed by the Norman Hugh and its many diminutives. Reaney adduces evidence that Hudde was also regarded as a pet form of Richard.
  2. German: from a short form of a Germanic compound personal name formed with hut ‘guard’ as the first element.
  3. Variant spelling of German Hütt (see Huett).
  4. Jewish (Ashkenazic): metonymic occupational name from Yiddish hut, German Hut ‘hat’ (see Huth).
