Name Meaning

English: of Norman origin, from the Middle English personal names Huward (also Howard) and Heward, from Old French Huard (itself from ancient Germanic Hugihard, hugi- ‘mind, understanding, spirit’ + hard- ‘hardy, bold’). As Hugh appears in Middle English as both How and Hew, this is the definite origin of Heward and a source of Howard. This surname is also very common among African Americans. See Hugh .

English: from the Middle English personal name Haward or Howard, usually an Anglicized form of Old Danish Hāwarth (Old Norse Hávarthr, from ‘high’ + varthr ‘guard, guardian, warden’). Alternation between Haward and Howard may have led to later confusion with Hayward .

English: occasionally a variant of Ewart 2.
