My uncle's Hebrew name is Honnannu. I've never heard of it and I've
checked >several books, but found no listing. Can anyone tell me what it's
origin is
or what it means?

There is no Hebrew name "Honnannu" as such. There are however, at least
three biblical Hebrew names that could qualify as "candidates": Hanan (in
Ashkenzic, Honon), Hananyah (aka Hananyahu) and Hananel. Of the three,
Hanan-el sounds closest to Honnann-u. Perhaps a pronunciation error crept
in at some point, resulting in the spelling you gave here?
