English: from a Middle English personal name, Alard, Adelard, Aylard, or Elard. The former two names are usually of native English origin, from Old English Æthelheard, composed of the elements æthel ‘noble’ + heard ‘hard, bold’. Alternatively, the surname may be of continental origin, from an ancient Germanic name (see 2 below), which developed in Old French to Alard, and in Middle Dutch to Adelaert and Alaert. The continental names were used in post-Conquest England by Normans and Flemings. Later development of -ard to -ett and -att in surnames means that these personal names may also lie behind some examples of e.g. Allatt and Hallett .
French: from the medieval personal name Alard, from ancient Germanic Adelhard, composed of the elements adal ‘noble’ + hard ‘hardy’. Compare Allar , Allor , Allord , and Allore .
