Blanes Surname History



The Boernician clans of the Scottish-English border region were home to the ancestors of the Blanes family. Their name is derived from the Gaelic personal name Bleen, which means yellow. It was also the name of an early Celtic saint.

The surname Blanes was first found in Ayrshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Inbhir Àir), formerly a county in the southwestern Strathclyde region of Scotland, that today makes up the Council Areas of South, East, and North Ayrshire, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
