Origin, Meaning, Family History and Harmon Coat of Arms and Family Crest

Meaning, Origin, Etymology
The surname Harmon is one of the oldest names that came from tribes in Britain and is of Anglo-Saxon origin that is derived from Herman, Hermannus or Heremon.   Heremon was the seventh in descent from Milesius and became monarch of all Ireland. The personal name is meant warrior and derived from the Old French word hermant or from the Old German words hariman or hereman which all mean warrior. Harmon may be contracted from the surname MacHeremon.   The Harmon surname came to England in the wake of the Norman Conquest in 1066. Not all of the family moved to England because Ralph, William, Richard and Hugh Herman were all listed in Normandy in 1180.
