Meaning & Origins

Of Celtic origin and uncertain derivation (possibly a diminutive of a word meaning ‘rock’). It was introduced into England by Breton followers of William the Conqueror, most notably Alan, Earl of Brittany, who was rewarded for his services with vast estates in the newly conquered kingdom. In Britain the variants Allan and Allen are considerably less frequent, and generally represent transferred uses of surname forms, whereas in America all three forms of the name are approximately equally common. See also Alun.

Japanese: ‘new rice paddy’; mostly found in western Japan. The most famous Nitta family took the name from their residence in Kōzuke (now Gunma prefecture). They descended from Minamoto no Yoshishige (died 1202), who was also the ancestor of the Tokugawa. One descendant, Nitta Yoshisada (1301–38) was the major opponent of Ashikaga Takauji in the latter's bid for the Shogunate, in which Takauji was confirmed the year of Yoshisada's death in battle. At this time there was a schism in the imperial family, with rival emperors ruling from separate courts. Takauji supported each side in turn, as it suited him politically, but Yoshisada is to this day revered as the champion of the southern (considered ‘legitimate’) court. Alternative readings of the surname are Arata (mostly found in the Ryūkyū Islands) and Shinden.
