Huck Family History
Huck Name Meaning
English: from the Middle English personal name Hucke or Hugge. Some examples (especially in northern England) may represent Old English (H)ucca a pet form of Ūhtrǣd. By the late 13th century however this personal name had probably fallen out of use and Hukke and Hug(ge) will usually have been variant pronunciations of Hugh or its pet forms Hukin and Hugin. See Hugh and Huggins and compare Higson . English: variant of Hook . German (also Hück): topographic name from a term meaning ‘bog’ also ‘corner’ or a habitational name from Huck in North Rhine-Westphalia. Compare Hux . German (also Hück): from a pet form of the personal name Hugo . Germanized form of Sorbian Hujk: nickname from a pet form of Lower Sorbian huj ‘uncle’ (see Huy ).
