An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The distinguished surname Huk is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It is thought to be derived from the Old English personal name "Ucca," a pet-form of "Uhtraed." Alternatively, it may be related to the Old English "hoc," meaning "hook"; in this case, the name would probably refer to someone with a hooked or bent figure.

Huk Early Origins



The surname Huk was first found in Yorkshire, where Gamel filius Hucca was recorded in 1185. As the name has patronymic and nickname origins, it is likely to have emerged independently in several different places during the Middle Ages, thus creating several different founding branches of the Huk family.

Huk Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Huk family name include Huck, Hucks, Hux, Huckes, Ucke and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Huk surname or a spelling variation of the name include:
