Origin of the name ROWLAND.
Etymology of the name ROWLAND.
Meaning of the baby name ROWLAND.

  

ROWLAND.  English form of Frank Hruodland (q.v.), meaning "fame of the land." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

ROWLAND.  A translation for Welsh Tallwch (q.v.), "rolling torrent."

... Tallwch is the torrent, and seems to have been translated into Roland, from the sound of rolling, when the Armorican bards laid claim to the great Paladin of Charlemagne's court, on the score of his having been Warden of the Marches of Brittany, and wanted to make out that Roland was a name of their own.  They had thus caused Rowland to be considered as a regular Cymric name. (Ibid., Yonge, 1884)
