Hallion History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English , Irish , Scottish


Hallion is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from a family once having lived in Hallam, a place name found in Yorkshire and Derbyshire. In Yorkshire, Hallam is found in the South Riding. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the Old Scandinavian word hallr, or from the Old English word hall, both of which meant "stony." The place name meant "the stony place, the place at the rocks." In Derbyshire there is a place called West Hallam and another called Kirk Hallam. These names are derived from the Old English word halh, which meant "remote nook of land." Kirk in the Old English meat "church;" the name as a whole would be "church in a remote place," while West Hallam was a "remote place in the west."
