Name Meaning

1 Dutch and North German: from a Germanic personal name formed with an element cognate with Middle Low German nōt ‘distress’, ‘power’.2 Swedish: probably an ornamental or habitational name formed with Nol-, from Nord- ‘north’, plus the adjectival suffix -én, from Latin -en(i)us. However, it may also be a variant of Nolin, which in at least one case is derived from a place called Skällsäter, by Latinization of Skäll-, erroneously thought to be derived from Swedish skälla ‘little bell’, Latin nola. The place name is in fact derived either from Swedish dialect skäll ‘barren’, ‘infertile’, or from Swedish sköld ‘shield’.3 Irish: variant spelling of Nolan .
