An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2017


The name Gartlan originated among the descendants of the ancient Pictish clans. It is derived from the Old English personal name Gærland. However, the surname Gartlan may be a local name derived from some place which is now unknown; gær and land are common elements in Old English nomenclature.

Gartlan Early Origins



The surname Gartlan was first found in Perthshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Pheairt) former county in the present day Council Area of Perth and Kinross, located in central Scotland. However, we must look south to find the first record of the name. Johannes de Garlandia or John of Garland ( fl. c. 1205-1255) was a philologist and university teacher who studied at Oxford. Another Johannes de Garlandia (Johannes Gallicus) (fl. c. 1270-1320) was a French music theorist of the late ars antiqua period of medieval music.
