NB: These are all the names of all the administrative units which we have associated with Alloa, and you must judge whether all or even any of them are variant names for the place. They may well include the names of other locations or areas:
Every name listed here is linked to the particular historical source in which it appears, but we cannot claim that these are all the historical names of Alloa, or that our references are to the first usage of the names. Similarly, we have tried to ensure that names included here are not transcription errors by ourselves, but it is possible they are the result of errors made when the historical sources were printed, or the result of visiting authors or census officials mis-hearing local names.
