    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from any of several minor places called in Old English with hār ‘gray’, hara ‘hare’, or hær ‘rock, tumulus’ + land ‘tract of land, estate, cultivated land’, notably Harland in Kirkbymoorside (North Yorkshire). This surname has also been present in northern Ireland (Armagh and Antrim) since the 17th century, but is now rare in Britain.

    History: Harlan County, KY was named for Major Silas Harlan (died 1782). John Marshall Harlan, born in KY in 1833, became a US Supreme Court justice.
