I highly recommend
"Romany (Gypsy) Names"
It's the best source I've found yet.

The closest I've been able to find is <Hamon>, a given name, which could
have <Hamonet> as a diminutive (and then <Hamonette> as the corresponding
feminine, but without evidence for this I'd be hesitant to suggest it).
<Hamon> is found both in "An Index to the Given Names in the 1292 Census
of Paris" (http://www.sca.org/heraldry/laurel/names/paris.html) and
"Names Found in Commercial Documents from Bordeaux, 1470-1520"
Where did you find the byname? Is there some specific meaning that it's
supposed to have?
vita sine literis mors est
