Honnannu #general

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?

Thanks,

This is probably the Hebrew name Khananiah (Hannaniah) pronounced Khonaniu
in Ashkenazi accent

It sounds like it might be a variation of the Hebrew name Chananya.

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?
