    Name Meaning

    English, Welsh, and Scottish (of Norman origin): from the Old French personal name Hue, from ancient Germanic Hugo (ultimately derived from hugi- ‘mind, spirit’). This was a very popular name in England after the Norman Conquest, partly due to the reputation of Saint Hugh of Lincoln (1140–1200), who was born in Burgundy and who established the first Carthusian monastery in England.

    Scottish and Irish: adopted as an Anglicized form of the Gaelic personal name Aodh, a derivative of a Gaelic word meaning ‘fire’. See Hughes .

    Chinese: variant Romanization of the surnames 邱 and 丘, based on their Hakka pronunciation; see Qiu 1 and 2.
