Hugin History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
Early Origins of the Hugin family
The surname Hugin was first found in Fife, where like its English counterpart, the name is a diminutive of "Hugh" as in "son of Hugh."  This is turn, translates in Latin to "Hugo."  Hugens was in the Domesday Book as a surname while Hugh, Hugo and Hugolin were personal names. 
Taking a rather large step back in time over the centuries, we found Andrew Hugoun, latimus, recorded in 1519, and a few years later, Robert Huggou (perhaps a miscopying of Huggon) in Glasmount in 1540, and John Huggoun had sasine of lands of Neddyr Pitgrugny in 1545.
