hóh
hógh, hó, hoo a form occurring in local names whose meaning is thus given by Kemble: 'Originally a point of land, formed like a heel, or boot, and stretching into the plain, perhaps even into the sea,' Cod. Dipl. iii. xxvi, where see the references to the various forms. Kemble's supposition is borne out by the following passage, in which the word occurs independently Wé ðá fóron forþ be ðæm sǽ and ðǽr ða heán hós and dene and gársecg ðone æthiopia wé gesáwon promuntoria ad oceanum in ethiopia vidimus, Nar. 24, 9. [Cf. (?) over hil and hogh, Cursor Mundi 15826.]
