Greetings: Would you kindly tell me the correct Irish/Gaelic spelling and pronunciation of my married surname...Lynch?
Also, can you suggest an Irish/Gaelic one-or-two-word endearment suitable for inscribing on the gravestone of a much loved, departed mother?
Many thanks for your time and trouble in assisting me in my quest. Best regards, Marguerite Hanley Lynch, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Lynch < Ó Loingsigh = Descendant of Loingseach, which means "seafarer, exile", from "long", which means "ship".

Ó Loingsigh is the form for a man, though - if it's your married name, then you would call yourself Marguerite Uí Loingsigh. Your daughter would be X Ní Loingsigh and your son, again, X Ó Loingsigh.

Interpretation/pronunciation/phrases urgently required. Would someone please answer my two most recently posed and posted questions re an Irish wedding toast; a suggested gravestone inscription; and the pronunciation of the surname, O Loinsigh. Please respond to this discussion forum, or, to my e-mail address: marglynch@mountaincable.net. Many thanks. Marguerite.
