Harriot is a gorgeous girl’s name of German origin. A sweet little twist on Harriet, which comes from the all-classic name Henry, Harriot means “home ruler” and might do if your little one has claim over the kingdom of your heart. While Harriot’s meanings hit home, it has much more in common with the cosmos than you might think! It was once the surname of astronomer and mathematician Thomas Harriot, who made history as the first to draw the moon after observing it through a telescope. A lunar crater and an exoplanet were also named Harriot in his honor.
