Meaning of Harith

Harith is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “cultivator”, “farmer” (literally “one who plows”), it also means “lion”.  Harith is an ancient Arabic name and can be found in the names of many Sahaba (companions of the Prophet ﷺ), usually in the names of their fathers, such as Anas bin al-Harith, Ibrahim bin al-Harith. It is derived from the H6-R-TH root which is used in many places in the Quran.

    I found the meaning of haris on web as guardian or protector. Can anyone tell whether is it true or not?
    I have seen that haris is same as harith on this site.
    Does haris means farmer, lion and guardian too or not?
