Wieland Name Meaning

German: from a Germanic personal name composed of the elements wig ‘war’ + land ‘land’, ‘territory’. This name was borne by the supernaturally skilled smith of Germanic folk legend, and for this reason it may in part have been given as a nickname to blacksmiths. Jewish (Ashkenazic): presumably an adoption of the German surname.
