The surname Lusty comes from the Irish Gaelic "O Loiste." The name was sometimes anglicized as Lastly, which sometimes was corrupted to Leslie.

Lusty Early Origins



The surname Lusty was first found in County Donegal (Irish: Dún na nGall), northwest Ireland in the province of Ulster, sometimes referred to as County Tyrconnel, where the Annals of Loch Ce mention the death of John O'Loisde, the abbot of Assaroe, in 1502.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Suivez moi
Motto Translation: Follow me.
