    Name Meaning

    English: from the Middle English and Old French personal name Rollant, Rolant, Rolent, Roulent (ancient Germanic Hrodland, Rodland, from hrōd ‘glory’ + land ‘land’), introduced into England by the Normans. It was made famous by French romances about Roland, the most famous of the peers of Charlemagne who was killed at Roncesvalles in AD 778. Although widely used across post-Conquest England (along with Oliver, the name of Roland's companion), it seems to have been restricted to particular gentry families and was never popular. Compare Roland .English: habitational name from Rowland (Derbyshire) or Rowland Wood in Slinfold (Sussex). The Derbyshire placename derives from Old Norse ‘roe, roe buck’ or ‘land mark, boundary’ + lúndr ‘small wood, grove’. The Sussex placename probably derives from Middle English roughe ‘rough’ + lond ‘land’ (Old English rūh, land).English: in northern England and perhaps elsewhere, perhaps a post-medieval variant of Rawling . Compare Rawlinson , Rollinson .
