Huʹtin

.

Louis le Hutin. Louis X. Mazerai says he received the name because he was tongue-doughty. The hutinet was a mallet used by coopers which made great noise, but did not give severe blows; as we should say, the barker or barking dog. It is my belief that he was so named because he was sent by his father against the “Hutins,” a seditious people of Navarre and Lyons. (1289, 1314–1316.)
