Findley Family History

This is an Anglicized form of the Old Gaelic personal name Fionnlagh, composed of the elements "fionn" meaning "fair", plus "lagh", a hero. The latter element is written as "laoch" in modern Gaelic. The Old Scottish Chronicles of the Kings of Dalrida record the name as Fionnlaoich and Finnleoch, circa 1080. The name of MacBeth's father was spelt Findleach in "The Book of Leinster" (1070). The name is generally translated as "Fair Head" but the explanation for Fionnlagh or Fionnlugh also appears as "Faire one of (the Celtic God) Lug".
