Name Meaning

English: of Norman origin, a nickname for someone who habitually wore a distinctive pair of boots or gaiters, from Old French hosed, hoset, housé, Middle English hosey, hus(s)y,‘booted, gaitered’ (from Latin hosatus).

English: status name or nickname from Middle English hus(e)wyf ‘mistress of a family; wife of a householder’ (a compound of Old English hūs ‘house’ + wīf ‘woman’). Though originally a woman's name, it is often found as a male surname, presumably in a derogatory sense. The vocabulary word became hussie, with the meaning ‘disreputable woman’, in the 16th century; the surname, however, is not associated with this meaning.

Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hEodhusa ‘descendant of Eodhus’. This was the name of a bardic family associated with the Maguires of Fermanagh, also Anglicized as Oswell or Oswald .
