- Comments and insights on the name Alner: | Edit
This unusual name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and derives from a combination the Olde English pre 7th Century personal names "Aethelnoth", "Aelfnoth", and "Ealhnoth". These are all variants of the name "Athelnoth", which is composed of the Olde English elements "athel", noble and "noth", daring. The given name is recorded in a variety of forms in the Domesday Book of 1086; "Aelnod", "Alnoth", "Alnot", "Alnod", "Elnoc" and "Elnod", while the surname development has included William Alnath (1273, Wiltshire), Cecil Aylnet (1273, Oxford) Gilbert Elnod (1312, Kent) and Thomas Alnowe (1427, Essex). The modern surname can be found as "Allnutt", "Allnatt", "Allner", "Alner", "Elnaugh" and "Elnough". The marriage of John Allnutt to Mary Hatchet was recorded on the 19th October 1703, at St. Mary's at Hill, London. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of William Aylnoth, which was dated circa 1200, in the "Lewes Chartulary (Norfolk)", during the reign of King John, known as 'Lackland', 1199 - 1216. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
- Personal experiences with the name Alner: | Edit
It is a family name that has been handed down and used in every generation for the last 6 generations. Starting as an Uncle's first name and being handed down on my side of the family as a middle name.
Its my great Aunts name. She's in her 80s and was one of 6 children. That branch of the family is decendent from Ireland, and all the sibling names reflect either Gaelic or Anglo-Saxon origins.
