Harmony's language of origin is English and it is also predominantly used in English. The name Harmony means 'harmony; concord, peace, unity'.

It was later made known by the British science fiction TV series Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons (1967-1968), in which the five female pilots were codenamed Harmony, Destiny, Symphony, Melody, and Rhapsody.
