Vallan Early Origins



The surname Vallan was first found in Italy. Bearers of this surname have been found in almost every area of Italy, though certain spellings of the name are more common in some areas than others. In general, those that end in "o" are from the south, whereas those that end in "i" are from the north. Valle is more common in Liguria than anywhere else, while Vallotto, Valotto, Vallon, Vallan, Vallese, Valesi and Valles originate in Venetia. The name comes from the Latin word "vallis," meaning "valley" and was therefore probably given to a family who made their home in a valley.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: In valle quiescit
Motto Translation: In the valley of our home, we find peace.
