Isn't that the same as Hugman?

By the way, a history lesson on Austin's airport name - "Austin-Bergstrom International Airport". The name Bergstrom comes from Bergstrom Air Force Base back when the property used to be an air force base. The base was named after Captain John August Earl Bergstrom, an Austinite, who was killed in the Pearl Harbor attack. He was the first Austinite to die in WWII. Then Congressman Lyndon B. Johnson convinced the Air Force to rename the base after Bergstrom. Of course, after the air base closed and was turned into an airport, the name stayed.
