William Holman Hunt

       William Holman Hunt was born on April 2, 1827. Hunt’s intended middle name was “Hobman,” which he disliked intensely. He chose to call himself Holman when he discovered that his middle name had been misspelled this way after a clerical error at his wedding at the church of Saint Mary the Virgin, Ewell. Though his surname is “Hunt” his fame in later life led to the inclusion of his middle name as part of his surname, in the hyphenated form “Holman-Hunt,” by which his children were known.
