Bland Family History
Bland Name Meaning
English: habitational name from a place called Bland in Sedburgh Yorkshire the origin of which is uncertain. Possibly it is from Old English (ge)bland ‘storm commotion’ (from blandan ‘to blend or mingle’) with reference to its exposed situation. The modern English adjective bland did not come into English (from Latin) until the 15th century and is therefore unlikely to have given rise to surnames. French: nickname from Old French blant ‘flattering’ (from Latin blandus).
