Harkonnen Castle painting by H.R. Giger

Harko was a major city of the planet Giedi Prime under the rule of House Harkonnen.

Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen celebrated his 17th birthday in Harko. He fought and killed his 100th slave-gladiator in the family games. Count and Lady of the Fenring were royal visitors in the festivies. An effort was made to create a illusion of gaiety in the city. The harsh and ugly reality of Giedi Prime was still, however, visible in the streets.

Presumably the name of this city was changed after the people of Caladan arrived during the time of Atreides rule of the Imperium. During this time, many names of places were changed, including the name of the planet itself.
