Meaning & History

Combination of eind and hoven, hoven can refer to "Hof" (fenced piece of land, garden, earth) or "Hoeve" (homestead). The origin of Eind isn't known well. It probably meant "the boundary between the cultivated land of a settlement and the waste ground outside of it". The place name can therefore be interpreted as "the court or farm on the border between cultivated land and uncultivated land". This is the name of a city in the Netherlands.
