Hartshorn Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Hartshorne in Derbyshire or Hartshorn in Northumberland, named from Old English heorot ‘hart’, ‘stag’ + horn ‘horn’, i.e. hill with some fancied resemblance to a hart’s horn. Reaney suggests a further possibility: that it could come from the Middle English plant name harteshorn ‘hartshorn’, denoting either of two plants with leaves branched like a stag’s antlers: Senebiera coronopus and Plantago coronopus.
