Meaning: Son of Red Origin: Irish
The meaning of the Irish name Harkin is ‘Son of Red’.
Deriving from the Irish surname Ó hEarcáin, which means ‘descendant of Earcáin’, the root word of Earcáin, being Earc, meaning ‘red’. I like the possibility of Harky as a nickname.
Harkin reminds me of names Hasley, Lark, Harlem (or Harlan), Korbin and Parker.
