MALLEN Family HistoryRecorded in several spellings including Malin, Mallin, Malan, Mallan, Malen, Mallen, and the patronymics Mallinson, Mallison, and Malleson, this surname is one of a group that were derived from the name of the first bearer's mother. It is from the medieval female given name "Malin", a diminutive of "Malle, itself a pet form of the very popular Mary. The base name is believed to come from the Aramaic "Maryam", meaning "wished for a child". St. Jerome understood it as a compound of "mar", drop, and "ham", sea, which he rendered as "stilla maris" (Latin), later altered to "stella maris", star of the sea.
