Origins Available: English, Scottish


Golon is a name 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.

Golon Early Origins



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