Origins Available: Dutch, English, German, Scottish, Spanish


The name Golen is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from the baptismal nameJollan. Baptismal names began to appear as surnames relatively late in the growth of the naming tradition. This is a little surprising, given the popularity of biblical figures in the Christian countries of Europe. Nevertheless, surnames derived from baptismal names grew in popularity during the Middle Ages, and have become one of the foremost sources for surnames.

Golen Early Origins



The surname Golen was first found in Lincolnshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Andrew Joline, who sailed to New York in 1686; Patrick Golane to Barbados in 1678; Elizabeth and John Jolland to America in 1772; and William Golan to Philadelphia in 1841..
