Name Meaning

English, German, Dutch, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, French, and Jewish (Ashkenazic): habitational name from Holland, a province of the Netherlands.

English: habitational name from Downholland or Upholland (Lancashire), Hulland (Derbyshire), the Parts of Holland, one of the three administrative subdivisions of Lincolnshire, any of the four places called Hoyland (southern Yorkshire), and possibly Great and Little Holland (Essex). The placenames all derive from Old English hōh ‘heel, spur of land’ + land ‘land’.

English: habitational name either from Hoeland (Farm) in Bury (Sussex), or from Holland's Barn in Albourne (Sussex). The placename in Bury has the same etymology as in 1 above, while the placename in Albourne may derive from Old English hol ‘hole, hollow’ + land ‘land’.
