Larkin is a boy's name of Irish origin steeped in heritage and significance.

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.
