    Name Meaning

    English: from the Middle English personal name Lamb, a pet form of Lambert .English: nickname for a meek and inoffensive person, from Middle English lamb, or a metonymic occupational name for a keeper of lambs. See also Lamm .Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Luain ‘descendant of the warrior’, formerly Anglicized as O'Loan (see Lane 3). MacLysaght comments: "The form Lamb(e), which results from a more than usually absurd pseudo-translation (uan ‘lamb’), is now much more numerous than O'Loan itself.".
