Today's Irish surnames are underpinned by a multitude of rich histories. The name Flin originally appeared in Gaelic as O Floinn, which is derived from the word "flann," which means "ruddy."

Early Origins of the Flin family


The surname Flin was first found in Tuitre (now Antrim,) where they were Lords of Tuitre. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

However, the Flin surname arose independently in several parts of Ireland. Perhaps the oldest line were a Sept of O Floin in Armagh, Ulster, where they were a senior branch of Clanna Rury of Ulidia, claiming descent from King Colla Uais, the famed 4th century Irish King, who in turn was descended from the Heremon royal line.
