The German surname Harfmann was a patronymic, created from the name of the original bearer's father. As a personal name, Harfmann long predated surnames. There is record of a Hartman von der Aue, who was a 12th century epic poet. The German root "hart" or "hard," meant " bold" or "brave."

Harfmann Early Origins



The surname Harfmann was first found in Hanover, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power. There is an early record of Ticze Hartman in Liegnitz in 1369.
