Howard Meaning
From an English surname which can derive from several different sources: the Anglo-Norman given name Huard, which was from the Germanic name Hughard ; the Anglo-Scandinavian given name Haward, from the Old Norse name HávarðR ; or the Middle English term ewehirde meaning "ewe herder". This is the surname of a British noble family, members of which have held the title Duke of Norfolk from the 15th century to the present. A famous bearer of the given name was the American industrialist Howard Hughes (1905-1976). Howard is an English name, derived from the French given names "Huard" or "Heward". These names themselves are derived from the Germanic personal name "Hughard", a compound of the words "hug", which means "heart or spirit", and "hard", which means "strong or hardy".
