Names from the Middle Ages demonstrate many spelling variations. This is because the recording scribe or church official often decided as to how a person's name was spelt and in what language. Research into the name Nyland revealed many variations, including O'Neilan, O'Neylan, Neilan, Neylan, O'Nelan and others.

First found in County Clare (Irish: An Clįr) located on the west coast of Ireland in the province of Munster.

Many arrived to eventually find such conditions, but many others simply did not arrive: victims of the diseased, overcrowded ships in which they traveled to the New World. Those who lived to see North American shores were instrumental in the development of the growing nations of Canada and the United States. A thorough examination of passenger and immigration lists has disclosed evidence of many early immigrants of the name Nyland:
