huntōną > huntian
This name derives directly from the English surname "Hunter (hunt +‎ -er)", which derives from the old English “huntian”, meaning “to hunt”. Ultimately this name derives from the Proto-Germanic “*huntōną”, meaning “to hunt, capture”. 1) Hunting of big game is an ancient event, dating back thousands of years. Based on cave paintings, it appears that early man hunted mammoth in groups, using a combination of spears or large rocks, or alternately running the animal over a cliff. 2) A bounty hunter captures fugitives for a monetary reward (bounty). Other professional names, mainly used in the United States, include bail enforcement agent, bail agent, recovery agent, bail recovery agent, or fugitive recovery agent. In modern times Bail Enforcement Agents still carry out arrests, but the idea of 'bounty hunting' is now not often used or liked by many in the profession due to its historical context.
