Origins Available: Irish-Alt, Irish


There are many Irish surnames being used today in forms that are quite different than their original, ancient forms. Lochlain originally appeared in Gaelic as Mac Lochlainn or O Maoilsheachlainn. The first name is derived from a Norse personal name, while the second name originally designated a follower of St. Secundinus.

Lochlain Early Origins



The surname Lochlain was first found in County Meath (Irish: An Mhí) anciently part of the kingdom of Brega, located in Eastern Ireland, in the province of Leinster, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest of England in 1066 A.D.
