The origin of the word comes from Old English herebeorg (shelter, refuge; military quarters) via Proto-Germanic *harjabergō (army shelter; refuge) which ultimately derives from a PIE source. Harbor is also an English surname, originating as an occupational name for an inn-keeper or someone who kept a lodging house.
