Hello all,
my name is Oliver, my wife is Birgit and my parents are Juergen & Waltraud Hehn.
They are still living in Germany. I´m living in the UK.
I moved there in 2003.
Our german Hehn  family roots are in the Hunsrueck area and we can trace back some Hehn´s up to the 17th century. It was a poor family and some of my ancestors emigrated to the USA at this time. I´m very anxious about seeing how many Hehn´s we are aound the world.

Message: This is quite an interesting website I have stumbled upon. I didn't know the name Hehn was quite this popular, although I have yet to find a proper meaning of the name.
Nonetheless, this is what I know. My grandfather is one Mannfred Hehn, descendant of Herrmann Hehn and Lina Hehn. Mannfred's brother is Gert Hehn. The family descended from Westerwald in Germany, although they have since spread out a bit more. As far as I know, on this side of the family, the name is going to die out as all of Mannfred's children were daughters (including my mother). Only myself and a cousin of mine (who has a double last name - but she will marry and thus probably lose the Hehn) will be able to continue the lineage of this name.
Now, as a German speaker, I implore all of you to not pronounce it HANE. It is a German name and should be pronounced accordingly, the correct way should be just the way you spell it, or: HEH - uhn.
