c.1400, haute, "high in one's own estimation, haughty," from Old French haut (11c.) "main, principal; proud, noble, dignified; eminent; loud; grand," literally "high," from Latin altus "high" (see old); with initial h- by influence of Frankish hoh "high." Spelling altered 16c. by influence of caught, naught, etc.
haught had another brother named Henry, who had come to Arizona from Texas, and had brought a half-hound with him.

haught was a famed bear hunter who lived in a log-cabin somewhere up under the rim of the mesa.

Mr. haught got instructions to add some new dogs to his pack.
It was a very large, beautiful stag, the most noble and wild and sagacious animal haught had ever seen.
"Reckon we'll shore smoke up some bars along Dude," said haught.
At first I thought haught's informant was exaggerating a mere rumor.
Finally haught took his brother Henry and some other men on a bear hunt.
