It is possible that this name may have swallowed up a less common Germanic personal name with the first element heri, hari ‘army’.2 Dutch: from a Germanic personal name composed of the elements heri, hari ‘army’ + rīc ‘power’, or from an assimilated form of Henrick, a Dutch form of Henry .3 Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hEirc ‘descendant of Erc’, a personal name meaning ‘speckled’, ‘dark red’, or ‘salmon’. There was a saint of this name. The surname is born by families in Munster and Ulster, where it has usually been changed to Harkin .
