Last name origins & meanings:
- Scottish and northern English: variant spelling of
Allen. This is the more common spelling of the name in Scotland
and northern England; in Scotland it is often found as an English form
of the Gaelic name McAllen (see McAllan).
- One early bearer of this name in North America was William Allan, a
British soldier who took his family to the newly founded city of
Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1749. His son John (1746–1805) was a
Revolutionary soldier who eventually (1783) founded the settlement of
Allan’s Island, Passamaquoddy Bay, ME.
