Aukland is a common farm name in the counties Hordaland, Rogaland, Vest-Agder and Aust-Agder, at least 20 farms. It means "added land", "new cultivated land".

There are many varieties in the spelling: Aukland, Økland, Augland, Ougland, Ugland. "g" most often used at the southern coast, "k" more often used inland and northern, reflecting the local accents.

Økland (Danish way of spelling?) is mostly used in Hordaland.

From Rygh "Norske gaardsnavne":
Aukland Bokn Bokn Rogaland
Aukland Skjold Skjold Rogaland
Aukland Grindeim Etne Hordaland
Aukland Ølen Fjelberg Hordaland

In 1900/1865 census the spelling Aukland is also used in: Aukland, Hjelmeland, Rogaland
Aukland, Forsand, Rogaland
Aukland, Laudal, Vest-Agder
Aukland, Konsmo, Vest-Agder
