Húrin was probably named after Húrin Thalion, one of the heroes of the Edain in the First Age. It was customary in the House of Húrin to name sons after legendary figures.
Húrin was one of the Stewards during the Watchful Peace, when Sauron was in the East and the Nazgûl occupied Minas Morgul.
Húrin ruled as Steward for forty years, and was succeeded by his son, who became Túrin I.
