Harmon

Origen: Normando. The name Harmon is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from Herman or Hermannus. The names are really the same; it was a common practice for scribes to record a given name in the Latin style, where us is the masculine suffix. The personal name meant warrior having derived from the Old French word hermant, or from the Old German words hariman or hereman, all of which meant "warrior." This name came to England in the wake of the Norman Conquest in 1066, where William the Conqueror defeated the Anglo-Saxon nobility and killed King Harold to take the throne of England. After the war, there was a wave of immigration into England from continental Europe, especially from France and Germany. First found in Suffolk where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. The name Harmon in Ireland is sometimes a variant of the name Hardiman but was also brought to the country by settlers from England, where it is a form of the German name Herreman, meaning 'warrior'. Harman is mostly found in Leinster Province whilst Harmon is mainly confined to County Louth.
