Talan Country of Origin, Nationality, & Ethnicity

Talan is a Turkish surname.  The old meaning of the word is "invader".  That Turkey could be where the name originated makes sense because Turkey and the Ottoman empire encompassed Europe and the Mediterranean for centuries.  Turkey is also where Helen of Troy was from. One member of the Talan family was recently told (and this hasn't been verified yet)  that "Talani" is  the language which is the basis for Arabic, and a family of this name have been politicians in the Middle East for hundreds of years.. At least one branch of the Talan family is Turkish.
