MCGLYNN Family History

Recorded in many spelling forms including McGlynn, McGloin, and McGlone, as well as short forms without any prefix, this is an Irish surname. It derives from the pre 10th century Gaelic "Mag Fhloinn", from the elements "Mag" a variant form of Mac or Mc, and "flann", meaning ruddy, and probably given as a nickname to someone of a healthy reddish colour. The main sept of Mag Fhloinn originated in the the counties of Westmeath and Roscommon, from where it spread west of the Shannon, and even as far north as County Donegal. Glynn is also of Welsh origin, from "de Glin", but it is seldom the source of the name in Ireland...
