Origins Available: English, French


The rich and ancient history of the Jolin family name dates back to the time of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It comes 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.

Jolin Early Origins



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