The name Hudd is from the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name was given to a person who was a maker of hoods. The surname Hudd is derived from the Old English words hod, hud, hood, and hodde, which all come from the Old English word hod, which means hood. Occasionally, Hudd may be a local surname derived from the settlement of Hood in Rattery in Devon.

Hudd Early Origins



The surname Hudd was first found in Devon where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Hudd Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Hudd family name include Hood, Hoods, Hude, Hud, Hudd, Hode, Hoode and others.
