House of Mattachine have gotten its name from the civil rights movement that pre-dated Stonewall with decades, called the Mattachine Society.

The Mattachine Society used so-called harlequin diamonds as their emblem. The design consisted of four diamonds arranged in a pattern to form a larger diamond.

But the name has an even older history then that.

Mattachine was also a medieval and renaissance French secret society of masked men who, that through their anonymity, were empowered to criticize ruling monarchs with impunity.

This French group was named in turn after Mattaccino. The name comes from a character in Italian theatre. The name comes from the word "mattinate" (which means: mornings), and included going long hours, until morning and having fun. Mattaccino was a kind of court jester, who would speak the truth to the king when nobody else would.

The word "mattachin" however originally came from Moorish sword-dancers who wore elaborate, colourful costumes and masks and it is derived from the Arabic word mutawajjihin which means "mask-wearers".
