Harriet Meaning
English form of Henriette, and thus a feminine form of Harry. It was first used in the 17th century, becoming very common in the English-speaking world by the 18th century. A famous bearer was Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896), the American author who wrote 'Uncle Tom's Cabin'. Harriet is a variant of Henrietta. Henrietta originates in Germanic languages and means "ruler of the house". It is a feminine form of Henry. Henrietta has been a popular name within royalty over centuries but lately its usage, especially in the United States, has declined.
