LO all,

my name is Allan...

The boy's name Alan is pronounced AL-an. It is of Old German origin, and its meaning is "precious." From Adal. Also possibly derived from the Gaelic "ailin" meaning "little rock." Introduced into England by Breton followers of William the Conqueror, such as Alan, Earl of Brittany, who was rewarded for his services with vast estates in the newly conquered kingdom
