    Name Meaning

    Irish and English: variant of Strange 1 with fused Old French definite article le.

    Irish: in Ireland, adopted for Mac Conchoigchríche ‘son of Cúchoigcriche’, a personal name meaning ‘hound of the borderland’. Lestrange was adopted for Mac Conchoigchríche probably due to the presence of a prominent family of Lestrange, of similar meaning, who settled in the counties of Westmeath and Offaly in the 16th century.
