Etymology

French linguist René Lepelley writes that the etymology of Hiéville is similar to that of the commune Hiesville in the Manche department.[2] Both names probably come from the word 'hedo' (derived from the Ancient Greek word for pleasure) and the Old French word 'ville', which originally referred to a rural estate or territory. Ville itself was derived from the Latin phrase 'villa rustica,' a countryside home.
