HANEY Family History

Recorded as Hain, Haine, Hayne, Heyne, diminutives Hainey, Haney, patronymics Hains, Haynes, Heynes and others, this is an English surname. It has several possible origins. Firstly, it may be locational from any of the places named from the pre 7th century word "heghen", meaning a farm or enclosure. Secondly it could derive from the English personal name Hain or Heyne, meaning hawthorn, or from the Old Norse Hagni, which also means hawthorn. Finally, the name may have originated as a German (Anglo-Saxon) topographical name for someone who lived by a patch of enclosed pastureland, from "hagen", meaning hedge.
