Arlen is a gender-neutral name that dates back to the Anglo-Saxon era of Britain. Yet another surname making a stance as a trendy first name, Arlen was originally the surname of a family living in an ancient village called Horlands. In classic Anglo-Saxon naming fashion, Arlen means “hare land” and purposefully indicated that the bearers lived in a place that was richly populated with hares. Arlen may also be a modern form of the classic title Arlene and a variation of Arlin, an Irish name that means “pledge, oath.” Whether baby is an animal lover or loyal to the bone, Arlen will make a dashing title for your new arrival.
