Added June 2013:

The surname Hart can come from many sources. In England a 'hart' is a type of small deer. Surprisingly the surname Hart often (but not always) traces to Jewish sources and can be found in Germany as Hirsch. The Jewish source for the Hart surname can be traced to Iberia, both in Spain and Portugal. Of course, there are many Hart family lines which trace to England and Germany without any connection to Jewish sources.
