Meaning & History

Derived from the German compound wala-hran, literally "wall raven", but originally meaning "strong bird". Also derived from the Gaelic wealdærn, meaning "forest dwelling", thought to be derived from the Sussex village of Waldron. Although dating back to pre-7th century, the first known recorded uses were found in France after the 1066 Norman Invasion.
