Lachlan is a masculine given name of Scottish Gaelic origin. It is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic word "Lachlann," which means "warrior from the land of the lochs". The name is derived from the earlier Gaelic personal name "Lochlann". In the ninth century, the name was used to refer to someone from the land of lakes or fjord land. The Gaelic form of the name is "Mac Lachlainn," denoting the son of Lachlann. In recent years, Lachlan has become a popular baby name in Australia and New Zealand, ranking within the top ten masculine names registered in several Australian states. The name has also been used as a surname, with the Lachan family name found in the USA, the UK, Canada, and Scotland between 1840 and 1920. However, the popularity of the name has been decreasing in Scotland and Ireland.
