Hinty History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancient Anglo-Saxon culture once found in Britain is the soil from which the many generations of the Hinty family have grown. The name Hinty was given to a member of the family who was a person with a mild temperment. The surname Hinty is derived from the Old English word hendy, which means courteous, kind, and gentle. This word was also often used as a personal name. 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.
