the surname Maslin/Maslen is Old English. It's a kind of bread that is a combination of wheat & rye & is baked unleavened.

Just for fun I've also found another meaning Chris which seems to centre around oil?

The Maslen nos is a cape that is the most eastern point of the Strandzha mountain and it is the third biggest cape at the Bulgarian sea coast. Its steep slopes make the cape inaccessible. In the past the cape was notorious as a place where a lot of ships chrashed in and sank. The cargo of most vessels consisted of olive-oil, that is why the place was called Maslen Nos (The Oil Cape).

The Maslenica shoreline is on the Novigrad Sea, which is closed by a narrow channel on its northwest side and is now accessible by two bridges!

Maslenica (as in Maslenica Bridge) got its name from the olive groves grown on its shores for generations.
