Meaning & History
Likely a diminutive of HIND, a (nick)name derived from an archaic English word for a female deer, or a transferred use of the surname HIND, which is derived from the same source (and was likely given as a nickname to a shy, timid person). All the forms of this name saw some rare use as given names from the 1600s onwards.
