Name Meaning

English and Welsh: from the personal name Hwfa, of uncertain origin. The surname is more frequently found in the explicit patronymic form ap Hwfa ‘son of Hwfa’ (see Povey ) and forms with and without ap were still interchangeable in the 16th and 17th centuries.

English: perhaps from an unrecorded Old English personal name Hofig, a pet form of Old English Hofa (of uncertain origin but apparently from hof ‘temple’) + a hypocoristic suffix -ig. However, the absence of Middle English evidence for either the personal name or the surname leaves this explanation in doubt.

Americanized form of Dutch Hove .
