Name Meaning

English: habitational name from either of two places called Harwell (Berkshire, Nottinghamshire). The Berkshire placename probably derives from an old hill name Hāra (itself from Old English hār ‘gray’) + Old English wella ‘well, spring, stream’, while the Nottinghamshire placename probably comes from Old English here ‘army’ + wella ‘well, spring, stream’.
