Meaning & Origins

Mainly U.S.: transferred use of the surname, which is derived from a medieval English given name. The Old English form was Hearding, a derivative (originally patronymic in form) of Heard ‘hardy, brave, strong’, a byname or short form of the various compound personal names containing this element. Use as a given name may have been influenced by the U.S. president Warren Gamaliel Harding (1865–1923).
