Harms Family HistoryProbably a quarter of English names have strong Saxon or later Germanic influences; Harm and its variant forms Harms and Harmes comes into these categories. It may be a derivative of the original pre 7th Century personal name "Heremar", a compound which translates as "Army-Famous" and shown in the first recording "Heremerus de La Bolde", 1176, The Pipe Rolls of Stafford, or the name can be locational and derive from the town of Harms in Germany and may then be associated with the Huguenot or "Flemish Weaver" immigrants of the late Middle Ages.
