The ancestry of the name Farloe dates from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from when the family lived in the region of Fairleigh or Fairley. The surname Farloe is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names.

Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Farloe, or a variant listed above:
