According to Emanoel Kurdistan "hûma" exists in Southern Kurdish dialects too. Also "hûnga" exists in a few Soraní dialects. So my idea is, that "hûn" is probably departed itself of the proto-form "*shûma" thank of the typical sh > h-change in Kirmanjí.

What do you think?

Hûn = "you" plural (personal

Hûn = "you" plural (personal pronome)

I think that Hesen has forgotten that bit

Hún (You) is Plural second person Object/target pronoun in North Kurdish.
In Middle Kurdish is Éwe, and
In South Kurdish is Íwe

Hún dekarin ber her cishték mallé xo awa bikin.
Éwe debét ber le her shiték mallí xotan awa biken.
Íwe bayes wer le her cishtíg malli xuwedan awa bikeyn.
