Origins Available: Belgium, English, French


The Huet surname arose in France, Switzerland and southern Belgium as a patronymic name; a surname based upon the given name of the father of the original bearer. As a personal name, it came from the old Germanic personal name "Hugo," itself derived from the Old High German word "hugu," meaning "contemplative spirit." Like many other Germanic given names, "Hugo" was introduced to France by the Franks, a German tribe who established kingdoms in what are now northern France and southern Belgium following the collapse of the Roman Empire in the fifth century A.D. The popularity of this name was in part due to "St. Hugh of Cluny," a twelfth century monk.

Huet Early Origins



The surname Huet was first found in northern France and in the regions of Hainault and Flanders, territories within present day Belgium.
