Harris is a (patronymic or paternal) family name of British origins, and has many different spellings, none of which are the definitive, or 'correct', spelling. These spellings are largely regional which, when combined with the fact that most families only learned to spell in the 19th century, has led to different branches of the same families having different spellings of the name. Harris is the 24th-most common surname in the United Kingdom.
