A Raven Question

As I ramble around the internet, looking for anything and everything on Odin's Ravens, I came across this little site:

http://web.telia.com/~u85903393/hugin_och_munin_english.html

In the section dubbed "Mythology" the web-author states that the translations of "Hugin" (also Huginn, and I've seen it as Hugnin too), and Munin (Muninn) that one normally sees, i.e Thought and Memory, are incorrect. What I'd like to know is, how do we know they're incorrect, and if so, what are the correct translations? This is vital for my book, as I base my ravens' identities on them being "Thought" and "Memory".

So... haha... Thoughts? Memories?
