There is also a Lyng in Somerset, so named from Old English lengen ‘long place’.2 German: variant of Link .3 Chinese 凌: from a word meaning ‘ice’. In ancient times, the imperial palace was able to enjoy ice in the summer by storing winter ice in a cellar, entrusting its care to an official called the iceman. This post was once filled during the Zhou dynasty ( 1122–221 bc ) by a descendant of Kang Shu , the eighth son of Wen Wang , who had been granted the state of Wei soon after the establishment of the Zhou dynasty. Descendants of this particular iceman adopted the word for ice, ling, as their surname.
