McLaren Family HistoryRecorded as MacLaren, McLaren and the patronymic McLarens, this is a famous Scottish surname. It originates from the pre 10th century "Mac Labhruinn" translating a the son of Labhrunn, the latter being a Gaelic form of the ancient Roman baptismal name Lawrence. This was a name associated with biblical times, and hence one which was brought back to Europe by returning Crusader knights of the 12th century, fresh from their many and varied attempts to seize the Holy Land and Jersusalem from the grip of the Muslim.
