Name Meaning

In Scotland this is a habitational name from Den in Aberdeenshire or Dean in Ayrshire.2 English: occupational name for the servant of a dean or nickname for someone thought to resemble a dean. A dean was an ecclesiastical official who was the head of a chapter of canons in a cathedral. The Middle English word deen is a borrowing of Old French d(e)ien, from Latin decanus (originally a leader of ten men, from decem ‘ten’), and thus is a cognate of Deacon .3 Irish: variant of Deane .
