Hughes Genealogy & History

Hughes is an Irish, Welsh, and French name. It was first derived from the Old French given name "Hughe" or "Hue," which in turn was an abbreviation of one of the many Germanic compounds that included the word "hug", meaning "heart" or "mind." In Wales, however, the name could also have come from the Old Celtic "huw" or "hu," meaning "fire" and "inspiration." Hughes family history is first recorded in 1327 with Thomas Hughes. Hughes genealogy includes director John Hughes and poet Langston Hughes. The Welsh Hughes motto is "Kymmer-yn Lydeirnon", which is the name of the family's lordship.
