Surname Heritage
In the Irish context, the modern word "Larkin" derives from the personal name "Lorcán" which has been noted in a variety of Irish clans and regions from times well before the Christian era. The meaning of the name is most often ascribed to the Gaelic word Lorc meaning fierce. There are written references to kings with the name Lorcán by the year 850 AD and written references to it as a surname in Ireland in 1003 AD.
