- n. (Hawthorn)人名；(英)霍索恩
- hawthorn: [OE] The hawthorn appears to be etymologically the ‘hedgethorn’. Its first element, haw, which in Old English was haga, goes back to a prehistoric Germanic *khag-, which also produced English hedge and possibly haggard (German hagedorn, Dutch haagdoorn, and Swedish hagtorn share the same ancestry). The name of the tree’s fruit, haw [OE], is presumably either a back-formation from hawthorn, or an abbreviation of some lost term such as *hawberry ‘hedgeberry’. Hawfinch dates from the 17th century.
