Harlow Name Meaning
habitational name from any of various places called Harlow. One in West Yorkshire is probably named from Old English hær ‘rock’, ‘heap of stones’ + hlaw ‘mound’, ‘hill’; those in Essex and Northumberland have Old English here ‘army’ as the first element, perhaps in the sense ‘host’, ‘assembly’. There is also a record of this name as a variant of Cornish Penhollow.
