Khayutin
Anyone know what this surname means. It sounds different. It's probably pronounced (ha-yoo-ten).

I've found this name, and Khayutovsky, on a list of Jewish residents of Minsk, now in Belarus. If it's a purely Jewish surname it might derive from the Hebrew Khayit, meaning "tailor", and be occupational. But it looks Russian to me.

there is such a name khayuta in yiddish and hebrew it "in" in russia means belongs to - like Dunin, Dvorkin, and even Lenin (belongs to Lena) if the name is jewish like Dvorka or Duna it's a jewish name if it's russian it's a russian name

So probably denoting descent from a woman named Khayuta, and likely to be Jewish.
