McLellan / Leland / MacLellan

The names McLellan, MacClelland and Leland in Ireland are almost always of immigrant origin having been brought to the country by settlers from Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century. The native Gaelic Mac Giolla Fhaolain Sept of County Galway sometimes adopted these names as the anglicized form of their name, as well as the name Gilfillan in County Leitrim.

Origen: Escocés, Gaélico. The Clelland surname is generally thought to have been a habitational name, taken on from the place named Clelland, near Motherwell, Lanarkshire. First found in Lanarkshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Lannraig) a former county in the central Strathclyde region of Scotland, now divided into the Council Areas of North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, and the City of Glasgow, where they were seated from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Variantes: McClelland, Clelland, Cleland, Cleeland, McLellan, Leland, MacLellan y otros.
