Harmon Family History

This unusual and interesting surname has a very ancient history. It is one of the Norman forms of the Germanic personal name "Hermann", composed of the elements "heri, hari" meaning army, plus "man", man. The first known bearer was "Arminus", the 1st Century leader of a tribe called the "Cherusci", recorded by the Latin historian Tacitus. The popularity of the name is borne out by the large number of surnames it has generated throughout Europe; in England the inherited Norman forms existing in the modern idiom are Hearmon, Harmon, Herman, Harmon, Harmond, Harmant, and Hermon. The name development includes: Robert Hereman (1196, Norfolk), William Heremond (1296, Sussex), and John Harman (1327, Suffolk)...
