"?Allan? is the least common variant spelling of this name. It is also my given name. No one ever gets the spelling right the first time, sometimes not even the second time. Consequently, I generally just go by ?Al.? There?s no way to misspell that!" Jan. 20, 2020:
"It always seems so formal to me, for some reason. Maybe its because my father bears the same name, I'm sure I don't know. But I've only ever met one person outside my family who spells it the same way, though the name Allan in all its permutations is not uncommon in any way." Jul. 14, 2007:
