Hi David, I'd like to share my thinking about the name. There is a neighborhood in Paris's Left Bank called "La Hune" where wealthy Sephardic Jews built communities along the Seine River. During the "Old English" period, 450 - 1100 AD "har hune" meant downy plant or the common name for horehound which is the bitter herb used for Passover. Although in Dutch, "ter" means "to" or "at", it is also a Portuguese word that means, "have, got, hold, to possess or have in ones hands". So Ter Hune could mean to "possess the bitter herb for Passover". Hune is a popular Jewish first name but then again so is David. It's a lot of fun ... all these names ... what do they mean?
