It is of Irish and Gaelic origin, and its meaning is "man of arms, warrior". Irish surname in rare use as a given name; Sloane is used as a feminine form, and is associated with "Sloane Square" in west London, where a particular kind of young, upper-class women (known as "Sloane rangers") have their flats.

It is Irish and is reduced Anglicized form of Ó Sluaghadháin 'descendant of Sluaghadhán', a diminutive the Gaelic personal name Sluaghadh. A personal name which means 'raider', derived from sluaghadh 'expedition', 'raid'. Additionally, in Ulster there was also Mac Sluaghaigh, which was Anglicized as (Mc)Slowey or occasionally Molloy.

Aside from all of that, there is this site here which has lots more info on the Sloan surname and some that might even make sense!
