Huhn History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
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.
Early Origins of the Huhn family
