    To end World War I, President Wilson created a list of principles to be used as negotiations for peace among the nations. Known as The Fourteen Points, the principles were outlined in a speech on war aimed toward the idea of peace but most of the Allied forces were skeptical of this Wilsonian idealism.

    Name Meaning

    English (Devon): occupational name from Middle English, Old English hīne ‘servant, member of a household’, also ‘farm laborer’ (such as a herdsman or shepherd). Originally a collective term for a body of servants, from an Old English plural noun, hīwan ‘household’, in early modern English it commonly acquired excrescent -d (see Hinde ). Evidence from Nottinghamshire shows that some bearers of the name were wealthy freemen, which suggests that their eponymous ancestors were not farmhands but senior members of a lord's household. From the late 15th century onward in western England, from south to north, a hine or hind also denoted a farm steward or manager, a sense that may be relevant to the surname in northwestern England, where hereditary naming had not been fully established by the 16th century.
