The surname Hainau is derived from the Old German word hagen, which means hawthorne or hedge. In medieval Germany, hedges were commonly used to mark out one parcel of land from another; if a piece of land was being farmed, it was surrounded by a hedge more often than not. The word hagen became synonymous with an enclosed piece of land, and it is from that meaning that the name is derived. The name is a local name, given to one living on land enclosed by a hawthorne hedge.

Hainau Early Origins



The surname Hainau was first found in Silesia, where the family made a considerable contribution to the feudal society which shaped modern Europe. Individual bearers of the name first mentioned in ancient chronicles include Henczel von dem Hayn in Goerlitz in 1352, and Matz Drausche von Hain in Goerlitz in 1566.
