Huntsman Name Meaning
English: occupational name for a hunter or a huntsman’s servant. The second element is Middle English man ‘man’, ‘servant’, while the first is either from Old English hunta ‘hunter’ or Middle English hunte ‘a hunt’. In some cases it is probably from an unattested Old English personal name, Huntmann (a compound of hunta ‘hunter’ + mann ‘man’).
