DALLAS, probably originally Delossie, a surname adopted from the barony of Dallos or Dollas, in the county of Elgin, and most likely derived from the Lossie, which takes its rise in this barony. The name corresponds with another Losse in Haute-Pyrenees, being the region which history, tradition, and its topographical nomenclature point out as that whence the present population of Morayshire were introduced, on the expulsion of the original inhabitants by Malcolm the Fourth. Another, a Celtic derivation, has been attributed to the word, but it is unlikely that a barony under that settlement would bear a name given by an expelled people.
