English: from the Middle English personal name Hunne (Old English Hun(n)a, possibly deriving from hūn ‘bear-cub’). In some cases the name may also have arisen as a nickname from Old Norse húnn ‘young bear’, which later fell together with Hunne.
German: from the personal name Huno, a short form of an ancient Germanic compound name formed with hun ‘Hun, giant’ or hūn ‘bear cub’ as the first element.
