Name Meaning

English: from the Old English personal name Hūnwine, composed of the elements hūn ‘bear cub’ + wine ‘friend’. Later in the Old English or early Middle English period, this name came to be confused with the word unwine ‘enemy’ (from the negative prefix un- + wine ‘friend’), and this is no doubt the source of the surname in some cases.
