Ó Loingsigh

Many Irish surnames have 'Ó' meaning 'from' before the family or clan name. Sometimes this 'O' was dropped when the name was anglicised.

Pronounced: Owe Leengshig

Reference: "An Sloinnteoir Gaeilge agus an tAinmneoir" a handbook of Irish names and also the Irish language version of names that have immigrated.
