carlin B

gaelic
CARL(AN) > O'CARLAIN / O'CAIREALLAIN

This name derives from the Irish surname “O'Carlain and O'Caireallain”, which in turn derives from “Carl(an)”, composed of two elements: “carla” (wool-comb) plus “an” (one who), which means “one who combs wool”. In English, the Gaelic language of Ireland was not standardized in the Middle Ages. Therefore, one's name was often recorded under several different spellings.
