NAME ROOT:
*LINDON > LINDCOLN > LINCOLN
MEANING:
This name derives from English surname “Lindsay”, originally derived from the territory of “Lindsey” in Lincolnshire, from the Old English toponym “Lindesege”, meaning “Lindum Isle (marshlands of Lincoln)”. The Old English toponym “Lindesege” (Lindum Isle) derives from The Latinized form “Lindum”, from the Brittonic “*Lindon” meaning “pool, lake” (Modern Welsh: llyn "lake, pool, puddle, pond"). The kingdom of Lindsey or Linnuis (Old English Lindesege) was a lesser Anglo-Saxon kingdom, which was absorbed into Northumbria in the 7th century. In the late 19th century, the surname gave rise to the given name Lindsay (and variants Lindsey, Lyndsy, etc.) in the United States, at first as a male given name, and since the mid-20th century increasingly as a female given name. In the United States in 2007, has ranked among the top 200 names for girls from the 1970s through the 1990s.
