‘Obar Lobhair’ or ‘Aberlour’ means ‘the mouth of the chattering burn’.
A group of people that once lived in the area believed that they could speak to their ancestors through the waters of the burn. Though the river babbles as it passes alongside the distillery the name likely came from the murmurs of these ethereal conversations.
