The name Hinds is part of the ancient legacy of the early Norman inhabitants that arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. Hinds was a Norman name used for a person who was gentle or timid. The name Hinds is derived from the Old and Old English word hind, which refers to a female deer. A broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, nickname surnames referred to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character.

Hinds Early Origins



The surname Hinds was first found in Buckinghamshire where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Hinds Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names tend to be marked by an enormous number of spelling variations. This is largely due to the fact that Old and Middle English lacked any spelling rules when Norman French was introduced in the 11th century. The languages of the English courts at that time were French and Latin. These various languages mixed quite freely in the evolving social milieu. The final element of this mix is that medieval scribes spelled words according to their sounds rather than any definite rules, so a name was often spelled in as many different ways as the number of documents it appeared in. The name was spelled Hind, Hinde, Hynd, Hynde, Hynds, Hinds and others.
