Given Name
A GIVEN NAME (also known as a FIRST NAME or a FORENAME) is a part of a person's personal name . It identifies a specific person, and differentiates that person from other members of a group, such as a family or clan , with whom that person shares a common surname . The term given name refers to the fact that the name usually is bestowed upon a person, normally given to a child by its parents at or near the time of birth. This contrasts with a surname (also known as a family name, last name, or gentile name), which is normally inherited and shared with other members of the child's immediate family. Regnal names and religious or monastic names are special types of given names, as they are given to adults upon them receiving a crown or entering a religious order and as such are replacing the original given name of those persons. Given names are often used in a familiar and friendly manner in informal situations

Lachlann
LACHLAN (/ˈlæxlən/ , /ˈlæklən/ and /ˈlɒklən/ ) is a masculine given name of Scottish origin. The name is English and derived from Scottish Gaelic . CONTENTS * 1 Origins * 2 Popularity * 3 People * 3.1 Lachlann * 3.2 Lachlan * 3.2.1 Given name * 3.2.2 Surname * 3.3 Lachie/Lachy * 4 Citations * 5 References ORIGINSThe name is an Anglicised form of the Scottish Gaelic Lachlann, which is in turn derived from the earlier Gaelic personal name Lochlann. In the ninth century, the terms Laithlinn / Laithlind (etc.), appear in historical sources as terms denoting the origin of Vikings active in Ireland. The exact meaning behind these terms is uncertain. What is clear, however, is that the terms Lochlann / Lochlainn (etc.) came to replace these earlier terms; and that, by the eleventh century, Lochlann / Lochlainn certainly referred to Norway in historical sources
