In Reply to: Re: Goldene Hoehn or thoughs on origin of Hoehn family name. by Stacy Southward of 43

Stacy, I have sent you a direct email and an article I've written on origin and meaning of the HOEHN name.

For others, here is a clue. In the German version of the Christmas song "Silent Night, Holy Night" The third verse has the family name in it.

"Stille Nache, Heilige Nacht!
Die der Welt Heil gebracht
Aus des Himmels goldenen Hoehn
Uns der Gnaden fuelle laesst sehn:
Jesus in Menschengestalt,
Jesus in Menschengestalt."

The third line, "Aus des Himmels goldenen Hoehn" means "Out of heaven's golden heights".
I'd be happy to share my article with anyone interested.
just send me an email at
