Name Meaning

English, Scottish, and northern Irish: nickname from Middle English yong ‘young’ (Old English geong), used to distinguish a younger man from an older man bearing the same personal name (typically, father and son). In Middle English this name is often found with the Anglo-Norman French definite article, for example Robert le Yunge. In Gaelic-speaking areas of Scotland this was widely used as an English equivalent of the Gaelic nickname Og ‘young’; see Ogg . This surname is also very common among African Americans.

Americanized form (translation into English) of various European surnames meaning ‘young’ or similar, notably German Jung , Dutch Jong and De Jong , and French Lejeune and Lajeunesse .

Americanized form of Swedish Ljung: topographic or an ornamental name from ljung ‘(field of) heather’, or a habitational name from a placename containing this word, e.g. Ljungby.
