Name Meaning

1 English: topographic name for someone who lived by a boundary stone or a prominent outcrop of rock, from Middle English hōn ‘stone’, ‘rock’. This is the same word as modern English hone ‘whetstone’, and the surname may also be a metonymic occupational name for someone who used a whetstone to sharpen swords, daggers, and knives.2 Dutch and North German (Höne): from the Germanic personal name Huno, a short form of the various compound names with the first element hūn. Compare, for example, Humphrey . The exact meaning of this element is disputed, but it may be cognate with Old Norse húnn ‘bear cub’.
