    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: Irish Brendan, Liam, Kieran, Dermot, Donovan, Brigid, Caitlin, Siobhan, Aileen, Colm, Conley, Conor.

    Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Loingsigh ‘descendant of Loingseach’, a personal name meaning ‘mariner’ (from long ‘ship’). This is now a common surname in Ireland but of different local origins, for example chieftain families in counties Antrim and Tipperary, while in Ulster and Connacht there were families called Ó Loingseacháin who later shortened their name to Ó Loingsigh and also Anglicized it as Lynch.

    Irish (Anglo-Norman): from de Línse, a Gaelicized form of the Norman French name de Lench, deriving from one of the manors named Lench in Worcestershire. The placename derives from Old English hlenc ‘hill-side’.
