Flynn Genealogy & History

Flynn is an Irish name derived from the Gaelic "O'Floinn". "O" means "grandson" or "male descendent of" while "floinn" comes from "flann", meaning "red" or "ruddy". Flynn family history is first recorded in Tuitre, as Flynns were lords of that town; however, the oldest line of Flynns might be the O'Floins of Armagh, Ulster, where they claim descent from King Colla Ulas. The first recorded instance of the spelling "Flynn" was Archbishop Fiacha O Flynn in 1255. Flynn genealogy includes the American actor Errol Flynn, known for playing a swashbuckler, and James R. Flynn, who discovered the "Flynn effect"—the steady increase of IQ scores throughout the world.
