The surname Allansoune is a patronymic surname, derived from the given name Alan, meaning little rock. Patronymic surnames were created from the name of a male relative, usually of the father. As a given name, Alan beamed popular due to the Welsh and Breton saint, St. Alan.

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Virtute et labore
Motto Translation: By valour and exertion.
