Name Meaning

English: habitational name from either of two places in Devon named Hunnacott, from either the Old English personal name Hunā or Old English hunig ‘honey’ + cot ‘cottage’. There is also a place named Huncoat in Lancashire, which has the same origin, but the distribution of the surname in England suggests that it probably did not contribute to the surname.
