Allen Allan Surname




Frequently referenced resources



When trying to understand the meaning, locations and depth of my surnames there are several online resources I utilize. These sources are filled with interesting and detailed information and data you will want to bookmark to reference again and again.


From the Guild Of One Name Studies:

"The Allan surname (spelled with an 'a') is associated primarily with the Scottish Clanranald of the McDonals Clan (i.e. Cland Donald). The Allen surname (spelled with an 'e') is considered an English surname."1
