    I read it's a variant of Hermann, but nearly nobody would usw Harmon in Germany I think.
    I never heard it before. I only know Angie Harmon, but she's not German and it's the last name.

    It's an Anglicization of a German name (German root, through the Normans)... so it's a bit like how people say Jasper, Casper, etc. are Persian... they have a Persian root. However, I actually did know a German Harmon... but I've also mostly known German hippie types (hence why I assumed it was pure German... my mistake). In either case, I am neither German nor British... so it would probably qualify as "international" for me...

    I have a pretty hefty mix of cultural ties, so I feel like I could "get away with" using names from languages other than English fairly easily if I were raising my kids in Canada because a lot of the international names I love are either names that go with my family's lineage (German/Austrian/Transylvanian Saxon, Hungarian, Romanian, Scottish), or with my own living experiences (French, Spanish, Basque, Catalan/ Valencian).
