Some variables were adopted by different branches of the family name. Hence, there are some spelling variations of the name Hudon, including Heude, Hude, Heudon, Hudon, Heudelon, Hudelon, Heudelin, Hudelin, Heudelot, Hudelot, Heudel, Hudel, Heudet, Hudet, Heudot, Hudot, Heudaut, Hudaut, Heudault, Hudault, Heudier and many more.
