Human Name Meaning
English: partly from an unattested late Old English personal name, Hygemann, composed of the elements hyge ‘mind’ (cognate with the underlying Germanic element in Hugh) + mann ‘man’. In some cases this may also have been an occupational name for a servant (Middle English man) of a man called Hugh. Perhaps an altered spelling of German Homann.
