    Name Meaning

    English (Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire): occupational name either for a hunter or a servant of a hunter, from a compound of Middle English hunte ‘the act of hunting’ (or Old English hunta ‘huntsman’) + man. In some cases the name may also arise from a late, unrecorded Old English personal name Huntmann, a compound of hunta + -mann.
