Word Origin & History

hart
O.E. heorot "male deer," from P.Gmc. *kherut- (cf. O.H.G. hiruz, O.N. hjörtr, Ger. Hirsch), perhaps from PIE base *ker- "horn" (cf. L. cornu "horn," cervus "deer," Welsh carw "deer"). Now, a male deer after its fifth year. Hartshorn "ammonium carbonate" is O.E. heortes hornes, so called because
a main early source of ammonia was the antlers f harts.

Hart definition


(Heb. 'ayal), a stag or male deer. It is ranked among the clean animals (Deut. 12:15; 14:5; 15:22), and was commonly killed for food (1 Kings 4:23). The hart is frequently alluded to in the poetical and prophetical books (Isa. 35:6; Cant. 2:8, 9; Lam. 1:6; Ps. 42:1).
