Name Meaning

English: topographic name for someone who lived by a spur of a hill, from the Old English dative case hō(e) (originally used after a preposition) of hōh ‘spur of a hill’ (literally ‘heel’). In many cases the surname may be a habitational name from a minor place named with this element, for example one in Norfolk.
