An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016


The chronicles of the Sloan family indicate that the name was first used by the Strathclyde Britons of the Scottish/English Borderlands. It is derived from the Gaelic personal name Sluaghadhán. Sloan is a patronymic surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. The surname Sloan is derived from the given name Sluaghadhán, which derived from the Gaelic word, sluaghadh, and meant, raid.

Sloan Early Origins



The surname Sloan was first found in Kirkcudbrightshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Chille Chuithbheirt), part of the present day Council Area of Dumfries and Galloway, former county in Southwestern Scotland, where they held a family seat. Johnn Slowane of Garoche was a juror on assize at Kirkcudbright in 1508. Other early records include a William Slowane, who held a tenement near Dalkeith, in Midlothian in 1504. The name has also existed in Ireland since at least the 15th Century, when bearers of Sloane emigrated to eastern Ulster, in Armagh and Down. However, there is some debate that the name also has native Irish roots, and had existed in Ireland prior to this emigration.
