    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from a place in Hampshire called Poland, which probably derives from Old English Pōling or Pulling ‘pool place’. Alternatively, it may be a variant of any of the similar (like-sounding) English surnames, such as Pulham and Pullen , altered by folk etymology to conform to the name of the country in central Europe.

    Irish (County Offaly, also Armagh and Down): variant of Polin . Compare Polan .

    German: ethnic name from Middle High German Polan ‘Poland’ + excrescent -d, denoting an ethnic Pole or someone with Polish connections.
