About Aedh or Eoghin (Hugh) MacDuff, I, Lay Abbot of Aberneth, Iy

The use of "Eoghan" for "Aed" is controversial - it is not an intermediary transition from Aed to Hugh, but a completely different name.

Aed (Aedh, Aodh, mutant forms Edh, Heth) is Middle Irish for "fire".

Eoghan is Middle Irish for "born of the yew tree" and is NOT, despite superficial similarity, the same as the Latin Eugenius, "well-born".

Hugh is Norman-French, from Germanic hug, "heart, mind, spirit", and how it came to be a replacement for "Aed", unless by way of "Heth" and based on similar look alone, is utterly unclear.
