German maybe, but this surname is in Reaney's Dictionary. He gives it a place-name origin, Hints, which occrs in the English Midlands and South-West. My dictionary of place-names derives Hints from a Welsh word for "road." Maybe your German ancestors adopted an English surname similar to their original name.
