Origin of the Name McAlinden

The origin of the name McAlinden was found in the archives. Variants of McAlinden include McAlinion, O'Mulderrig, Mulderrig, Linden and Glendon. In Irish this name is Mac Giolla Fhindein and both McAlinden and McAlinion are variants, both deriving from Saint Finian. McAlinion comes from County Fermanagh and McAlinden from the eastern part of Oriel, Counties Armagh and Down. Linden and Glendon are found in the Jacobite lists of the 17th century and are usualy written as McLyndon. McElenan and McElynan were found in the Fermanagh Inquisitions in the 1620s and 1630s. They were an important sept in the Gaelic order and claim descent from Niall of the Nine Hostages, their territoy being County Fermanagh and their chief styled 'Lord of Lough Erne'. Their ancestor was Giolla Finden O'Muldory.
The McAlinden coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all McAlinden descendants.
