Last name origin & meaning:

  • English : in all probability an English variant of Scottish Lachlan (see McLachlan), altered through folk etymology. However, Black cites one John sine terra (c. 1180–1214), suggesting that the surname could have arisen quite literally as a nickname for a man with no land.
