Haapala Name Meaning
Finnish: from haapa ‘aspen’ + the local suffix -la. Originally it was a habitational name for someone living or working at a farmstead so named, but in other cases the surname was an ornamental adoption during the name conversion movement in the 19th and early 20th centuries. It occurs chiefly in western Finland.
