Other Origin(s):Norse
Meaning:Fortified farm; Farmyard
Harcourt is a masculine name that gives off somewhat of a royal or sophisticated aura. Of French origin, it comes from a place name and means “fortified farm,” stemming from the Old French word cour, meaning “farmyard.” Harcourt also has some Old Norse roots that helped make this moniker more widespread in the 10th century. In the past, it might have been more popular as a surname and now stands strong as its own lovely given name, which can be easily shorted to Harry as a sweet nickname.
