Both work, and thanks for your interest.I have no idea how, or if, this might all work out, but there are Hottels, Hittels, Huttels along with variants adding an "r" suffix to all of the roots in the old Bucks (even older than old Northampton) area.With or without umlauts, too.
Throw in the Hettlers and you get quite a study.
Who knows, maybe something can be established, maybe not.
Will be happy to exchange information on the possibility though.
