An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The ancient surname Awlenie came from the given name Alan, meaning little rock. Patronymic surnames arose out of the vernacular and religious given name traditions. St. Alan was a Welsh and Breton saint and was very popular among the people of those two cultures.

Awlenie Early Origins



The surname Awlenie was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat at Richmond, but following the pattern of many Norman and Breton families, junior branches of this distinguished name moved northward over the border into Scotland. They appeared to have settled in Dumbartonshire in Scotland.

Awlenie Spelling Variations



Since the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules, Breton surnames have many spelling variations. Latin and French, which were the official court languages, were also influential on the spelling of surnames. The spelling of surnames was rarely consistent in medieval times, and scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules. Therefore, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings of their surname in the ancient chronicles. Moreover, a large number of foreign names were brought into England after the Norman Conquest, which accelerated and accentuated the alterations to the spelling of various surnames. The name has been spelled Allanson, Alanson, Allansone, Alansone, Allansoune and many more.

Motto

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.
