- (Heusden) First attested as husedinne in 1286. The toponym has been interpreted as Proto-Germanic *husid-inja- (“place of refuge, secure location”), in turn derived from Proto-Indo-European *keus- (“to hide, to occlude”) and related to Gothic 𐌷𐌿𐌶𐌳 (huzd, “treasure, hoard”), Old English hord (“hoard, treasure”) and Old Saxon hord (“hidden courtyard, treasure”). Alternative interpretations include Proto-Celtic *Kusidiniom (“settlement of Kusidinios”) and Proto-Germanic *hus-idh-umnjô- (“place of houses”). Compare Huizinge, Huisduinen and Opheusden.
- (Asten) First attested as Heusden in 1794. Etymology unknown. It is impossible to determine whether the toponym is related to that of the city of Heusden due to a paucity of old attestations.
