Name Meaning

Scottish, English, German, Dutch, Danish, and Jewish (Ashkenazic); Swedish (also Lång): nickname for a tall person, from Older Scots, Middle English, Middle High German, Middle Dutch, and Danish lang ‘long’, Swedish lång. The surname of (Middle High) German origin is also found in France (mainly Alsace and Lorraine), Czechia, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Croatia, and Slovenia.

Hungarian (Láng): from láng ‘flame’, hence probably a nickname for a passionate person, or a man with a fighting spirit. Alternatively, it may be an indirect occupational name for a smith or someone who worked with fire. This surname is also found in Slovenia, where it is spelled Lang, and in Slovakia, where it is spelled in both ways.

Chinese: Mandarin form of the surname 郎, an ancient term to refer to one's lover or son: (i) from the placename Lang (郎), the name of a city, the living place of Fei Bo, the grandson of the Duke Yi of Lu (ruler of the state of Lu, reigned 815–807 BC ). Some of his descendants later changed their original surname Fei to Lang (郎). (ii) borne by some families from the state of the South Huns (48–216 AD , located in northern China).
