- Pop. 97. In Clute T., Cochrane Dist. on Hwy 668, just N ofHwy 652, II km. NW of Cochrane. The T. was first surveyed in 1884 and named after Judge Roger Conger Clute. The origin of the name Hunta is not known.
- Suggestion from Mary Janes (Historian), Warwick, Ontario. April 2018:
- 'The story I was told, and it does make sense, is that a settler by the name of Glen Lovell, who came from Lajunta, Colorado named the settlement where he opened the first store and post office Hunta, just dropping the 'la'.
- 'La junta' is the Spanish term for junction. Hydro lines, railroad and the highway crossed at this point, and the gas line goes through there now too.'
