An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


A Viking family in ancient Scotland was the first to use the name Houg. It was a name for a careful and prudent person. While in England, this name is derived from the animal and is there a metonymic surname (a surname derived from the principle object associated with a trade or occupation), in Scotland it is derived from the Old English word hoga, which means prudent. 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.

Houg Early Origins



The surname Houg was first found in Durham, where they were located from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
