The names McLellan, MacClelland and Leland in Ireland are almost always of immigrant origin having been brought to the country by settlers from Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century. The native Gaelic Mac Giolla Fhaolain Sept of County Galway sometimes adopted these names as the anglicized form of their name, as well as the name Gilfillan in County Leitrim.

A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
