English, Scottish, and northern Irish: nickname from Middle English yong ‘young’ (Old English geong), used to distinguish a younger man from an older man bearing the same personal name (typically, father and son). In Middle English this name is often found with the Anglo-Norman French definite article, for example Robert le Yunge. In Gaelic-speaking areas of Scotland this was widely used as an English equivalent of the Gaelic nickname Og ‘young’; see Ogg . This surname is also very common among African Americans.
