Larkin is a boy's name of Irish origin steeped in heritage and significance. Though meaning “descendant of Lorcán,” Larkin's ties to the Gaelic word lorcc secures it the additional interpretation of “fierce.” While infused with wildness, Larkin also boasts esteem and a noble charm thanks to its links to the ancient Gaelic family. Originating in Scotland's Ayrshire, the Lorc family grew a legendary lineage that claims Lóegaire Lorc—the early high king of Ireland—among its descendants. What better name to invigorate your little one to pursue great heights with unrelenting and unwavering confidence.
