The name was borne by a 3rd-century Spanish martyr widely venerated in the Middle Ages and by a 5th-century monk and writer of Lérins, as well as various other early Christian saints.

Irish: the English surname (see 1 above) has been established in the south of Ireland since the 17th century, and has also been adopted as an English equivalent of Gaelic Mac Dhuibhinse ‘son of the dark man of the island’.

History: The surname Vincent of French origin (see 1 above) is listed in the register of Huguenot ancestors recognized by the Huguenot Society of America and also in the similar register of the Huguenot Society of South Carolina.
