A multitude of prestigious family names, such as the surname Hohn, were formed in the lands which became the modern state of Germany, a place renowned for its beauty, industry, and economic power. However, in the medieval era, Germany was fragmented and inhabited by numerous Barbarian tribes, who fought amongst themselves for control of the land. At this time, the surname Hohn emerged throughout the German territories.

Hohn Early Origins



The surname Hohn was first found in Germany, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name Hann became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation. Hans den alten Hanne and his son Hans den junge Hanne were recorded in the "Zeirschrift fur deutsche Geschicte des Oberrheins" in the year 1386. In 1498, Bernhardus Hani appears in the Wurttembergische Regesten" as a citizen of Grosseislingen.
