Lyon Genealogy & History

Lyon family history shows that this name is usually French. One possible derivation is the town of Lyons, whose name means "raven hill", or the town of Lyons-la-Foret in Normandy. It may also derive from the Roman "leo", and French "leon", meaning lion, and referring to a fierce or brave warrior. It may also originate from the French "Leo", the given name of many Christian martyrs and popes and the symbol of St. Mark. Irish Lyon genealogy shows the name probably deriving from the Gaelic O' Laighin, meaning male descendent of the javelin and probably given to someone skilled with this weapon.
