Origin: The name Hamblen, Hamblin, or Hamlin, usually spelled at the present time in the last manner, is supposed to be of Germanic origin, but the name has long been found in New England, and Alice (Hamblin) Kreps seems to have been of old New England ancestry in many lines. Hamelin is still a common name in France, and is found among French Canadians. Several of the name are said to have gone in the army of William the Conqueror to England in 1066, and the name has since been common in England. Anciently spelled Hameline, a later form was Hamlyn, and other forms are found. Several of this name have come to America from England, with a few from Ireland and Scotland, and some from France. They settled in New England and the south; the name has been found in New Jersey, but that family is thought to be of New England descent. One family is especially associated with Connecticut, and is probably related to the Cape Cod family. By far the largest family of the name is of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, descent, the immigrant, James, having come from London, England, and settled at Barnstable, Massachusetts, in 1639. To this family it is most probable that the Hamblins now under consideration pertain. From it have come Hannibal Hamlin, vice-president of tHistory of West Virginia

Origin: Magaha is the name of the tiny townsland in Cappagh, Co Waterford, Ireland where I grew up.

It consists of about three green and grassy farms, a wood and a small area of forestry. I know them all like the back of my hand.

As far as I am aware, the spelling "Mogeha" and "Magaha" have been interchangeable throughout the centuries. Magaha was the old spelling according to my Grandmother, and it changed somehow, to Mogeha over time.

My family believe that Magaha, means "Mag Gaoite", or the windy plane in Irish.

I dont know if this bears any significance to the orogin of your surname, but at least it adds a little mystery and a little richness.

Origin: This family traces back to the Galts or Celts in the highland North of the Meditranean Sea, dating about 800 BC. The Surname is first listed as Z'Walla meaning "descended from the Celts and was in the Saanen district of Switzerland. It was formalized to Zwahlen, Zwahlin or Zwallen in Switzerland. When the first ancestors came to America, imigrating through Lancaster, PA the name was 'americanized to Zwalle or Zwaller and later changed to Swalley, Zwally, Zwalley and Schwalley. Jacob Swalley moved to Iowa in the early 1800 and some of his descendents changed it to Swolley. All people with any variation of this spelling are related, excepting Swaley which is English.

Origin: The MacLennans originated from a branch of the Logans of Galloway. The Logans in turn stem from a Thomas of Logan (c. 1150) who may have been related to the Princeses of Galloway and thus the Scottish royal line.

According to an account by Rev. John MacRae of Dingwall, in 1374 a group of Logans was defeated North of Inverness at Druimnaduer. His account elaberates on an earlier account contained in the Wardlaw Ms. (1674).

The leader of the Logans was named "Gillagorm." He had a son called Croitar who was educated at Beauly Abbey. This Croitar had a son whom he named Gillafinan in honor of a Saint Finan. His descendents became known as the MacLennans. This was during a period when the surname Logan was outlawed to be used.

Gillagorm's widow, Helen, inherited the small estate of Drumnamarig near Tore on the Black Isle.

That the Logans resided in the North of Scotland during the 14th Century is confirmed by the fact that a Robert Logan was the King's Bailey for Banff c. 1370.

The spelling Loban is a later varation of the name.

Origin: GALLEN[Gail-len] surname for my family is 5965 of 6000 anient Irish surnames, originally coming out of Co. Meath[3 centuries prior to Christ on Earth. to Co. Leix, to Co(s). Mayo and Slig; and, finally stopping between Co(s). Donegal and Tyrone. The tribe of Gallenga is thought to be the origin of the name; but, it could have derived from an area of that name, too. Though, some may disagree - it is a rare name and very pld; with many numerious variations in spelling and origins. My thoughts only - those that are defeated and oppressed; rarely are able to retain their own files and records; as the winner destroys all of those and rewrites the conquered peoples records and History to their own liking and glorification. Glory is never written down in truth; and, the exception is the glory of Our Lord, JESUS CHRIST. There is a legend of a Gallen being changed into a swan by Mother Erin(pre-Druid, goddess[high]; and also that of Gallen of the Dishonored Spear.

Origin: Probably from the Alan tribal name. The Alans (Alani) originated in what is now Ossetia. They were driven west into the Roman Empire by the Huns. They fought the Huns at the battle of Chalon with the Goths and the Romans and then were more or less disbanded. Some of the Alan tribe was relocated by the Romans to Northern Germany/Denmark and about 600 AD they migrated to Britain. It is possible that the name Allemagne (German) came from the name Alling. Our family convertedt to the name Allen about 1700. The Allings trace their heritage in america to New Haven, Conn where the little village of Allington can be found. While in England they lived in Hemstead. The first recorded Alling here was Roger Alling and George Allen wrote the genealogy of the Allings circa 1900.
