English, Scottish, and Welsh: ethnic name from Middle English English, Inglish, Inglis ‘English’ (Old English Englisc), sometimes alternating with Anglo-Norman French Engleis, Engles, Anglais, Angles (Old French Englois). Compare Inglis and England . Among the aristocracy and upper gentry it marked out a man of English ancestry from one of Norman or continental origin. In counties bordering England with Scotland and Wales the name distinguished an Englishman from a Scot or a native Welshman on both sides of the border. The name may also have been acquired by English merchants who traded abroad or who lived and worked in a ‘French’ borough in England (one exclusively administered by Normans).
Irish: in Ireland, this name was used to denote an Englishman, often being adopted for Irish Aingléis ‘Englishman’ or through mistranslation for Mac an Ghallóglaigh, see Gallogly and Golightly .
