Last name: Carlin

My inlaws came to NZ from Dunbarton, Scotland. I have been trying to trace this family for some years now. From what I know, all CARLIN's in Scotland did come from Ireland and before that from the continent, there are many of this surname around Italy area.
Only two came to New Zealand.
The Carlin surname has been present in Northern Italy, Venice area, since 1400 A.D. People named Carlin are living in 168 Italian cities. http://www.gens.info/italia/it/turismo-viaggi-e-tradizioni-italia
Hi, I'm John Carling from Sweden. I'm a bit curious about my name. Could it be that Carling, with a g in the end, is a variant of Carlin? Kind regards /John
Yep, and also would be great to have an idea why they came to Australia? Anyone?

Work! I was informed that two Carlin brothers got on a ship that docked in SA (late 1800's), they split up and one of the brothers (Patrick Carlin) started on farms making his way to country Victoria.
Hi. See "The Great Migration" in http://www.houseofnames.com/carlin-family-crest I,m Karlin and i,m Russian. My ancestors lived since 1800 in the Russian land and are Russian. I think that the earlier ancestors also Russian. Although the presence of namesakes in Ireland and Sweden makes you wonder. We in Russia have the option value of names, it is alleged by the word of Karl - King. Ie it is either some relatives of some king or people who served the king. I do not know. All this is very interesting. If you want to talk about it - write =) rtlj*@*inbox.ru
Good analysis, thanks. Any ideas on the origin of the end part of the name (..hallan or ..eallan)?
