Meaning & Origins

Either an adoption of the Gaelic topographic term ros ‘headland’ (compare Glen, Kyle) or a transferred use of the Scottish surname, which is borne by a large and ancient family whose members have played a major role in Scottish history. Although still very popular in Scotland, the name is now in widespread general use.
599th in the U.S.
English and Scottish: from a Celtic personal name of great antiquity and obscurity. In England the personal name is now usually spelled Alan, the surname Allen; in Scotland the surname is more often Allan. Various suggestions have been put forward regarding its origin; the most plausible is that it originally meant ‘little rock’. Compare Gaelic ailín, diminutive of ail ‘rock’. The present-day frequency of the surname Allen in England and Ireland is partly accounted for by the popularity of the personal name among Breton followers of William the Conqueror, by whom it was imported first to Britain and then to Ireland. St. Alan(us) was a 5th-century bishop of Quimper, who was a cult figure in medieval Brittany. Another St. Al(l)an was a Cornish or Breton saint of the 6th century, to whom a church in Cornwall is dedicated.
31st in the U.S.
