Soon after the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, the name Ind was recognized on the island as a name for a person who was gentle or timid. The name Ind is derived from the Old and Old English word hind, which refers to a female deer.

Ind Spelling Variations


Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Hind, Hinde, Hynd, Hynde, Hynds, Hinds and others.
