From: "The Surnames of Ireland," Sixth Edition, Edward MacLysaght, 1999. Sixth edition 1985. Irish Academic Press, Dublin, Ireland:

pg. 4:
"Mac Alindon   'Mac Giolla Fhiondain' (devotee of St. Fintan).* A sept of Oriel. MIF 20**; Map Armagh-Down.
pg. 195:
"(Mac) Linden    See MacAlinden"
pg. 129:
"Glendon, Glindon   These and the intermediate form McLindon, as well as Lindon, are abbreviated forms of MacAlinden. Linton is also on record as a synonym in Cos. Down and Armagh."
pg. 202:
"Lyndon   See under Glendon."

*pg, 3:
"As names beginning with 'Mac 'Giolla followed by a saint's name...the words 'Sons of the devotee of' will not be repeated there."

**MIF reference: "More Irish Families."

[Oriel Project Group Admin Note: So 'Mac Giolla Fhiondain' (Gaelic) means "Sons of the devotee of St. Fintan."]
