The Fallang, modern spelling in Norway Falang, name is also a place name taken from a farm in Oppland, Norway. But, whereas the Fallingen farm is in an area in the far north of Oppland, the Fallang farm is in the far south of oppland in an area known as Gran. I have been told that in old Norse the name came from the word for foal and meadow meaning younghorse meadow. There are two small lakes nearby also named Fallang (upper and Lower).
