This name derives from the French name “Hugues”, which in turn derives from an Old Low Franconian given name based on the Ancient Germanic element “*hugiz”, meaning “mind, bright in mind and spirit, heart, mind, thought, sense, understanding”. The name became widespread in England after the conquest by the Normans. Hugues Capet (Hugh the Great) was the first "King of the Franks" from the eponymous Capetian dynasty, from his election to succeed the Carolingian Louis V in 987 until his death. Hugh of Lincoln (St. Hugh of Avalon), was, at the time of the Reformation, the best-known English saint after Thomas Becket.
