The distinguished German surname Huhn is of two distinct origins. Firstly, the name is derived from the German personal name "Huno," a nickname for the name "Hunold." In this case, the surname would have been originally borne by the son of someone called Huno. Alternatively, the name is derived from the Middle High German word "huon," meaning "chicken." In this instance, the name would have been originally borne either by a chicken farmer as an occupational name or by a very talkative person as a nickname.

Huhn Early Origins



The surname Huhn was first found in the region of Holstein, where the name first emerged. The young Huhn family was instrumental during this early period, playing a crucial role in the development of the medieval society of Schleswig-Holstein.
