The ancient Pictish-Scottish name Gerlent comes from the Old English personal name Gærland. However, the surname Gerlent may be a local name derived from some place which is now unknown; gær and land are common elements in Old English nomenclature.

Gerlent Early Origins



The surname Gerlent 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.
