Origen: Normando. Howard is an ancient Anglo-Saxon surname that came from the Old French name Huard or the Old German name Howard. The former name is derived from the Old German name Hugihard, which literally means heart-brave. The latter name, which is also spelled Howart, is a cognate of the Old Norse name Haward and means high or chief warden. Occasionally, the surname Howard may have been applied to someone who worked at a dairy farm at which female sheep were kept. In this case, the derivation is from the Old English words eowu, which means ewe, and hierde, which means herd. First found in Cumberland where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. The name Howard in Ireland is derived from the native Gaelic O'hIomhair Sept that was located in County Clare in the West of the country. It was also brought into Ulster by settlers from England, especially during the seventeenth century. O'Hure is a variant of this name.
