Human Family History

This interesting surname with variant spellings Human, Hughman, Howman, Uman, etc. is either a topographical name for someone dwelling by a hillspur or hill, deriving from the Old English pre 7th Century "hoh" meaning "projecting ridge of land" plus the Old English "mann" "man". It may also be an occupational name for a servant, hence servant of Hugh, deriving from Hu(gh)e, a short form of any of the various Germanic compound names with the first element "hug" meaning "heart, mind or spirit", plus the Old High German "man" "servant".
