Meaning of surname Hudner?
I was wondering if anybody knew what the name "Hudner" means? Or anything else about it.
The Hudners I know about are of mostly Irish (Norman Irish, according to what somebody told my family), and British descent.
Any ideas?

Hudner is an Irish name. According to De Bhulbh's All Ireland Surnames, this old Limerick name seems to be derived from Hugh, a Norman first name which mingled with Anglo-Saxon Húda to produce the common Hudde, which enters into a number of surnames such as Hudd, Hudman, Hudson, etc.

I am pretty sure that the name Hudner is British decent.
