Origin: Lakin is from England, but Lakin is also an Americanized version of the name Lachinsky which is Lithuanian. There are several American spellings of Lachinsky due to the unfamiliarity with Slavic pronounciation/spelling. My grandfather shortened his name to escape discrimination of being a Jew.
Surnames: Lachinsky, Lakin, Lakinsky

Origin: A parish in Ayrshire, Scotland. The etymology of the name may be found in the Gaelic Ach, an elevation, a mound, or round hill, generally level at the top; and leac, a flat stone, a tombstone. In several parts of Ayrshire may be traced the remains of cairns, encampments, and Druidical circles. Auchinleck appears to have been one of those places where the ancient Celts and Druids held conventions, celebrated their festivals, and performed acts of worship.

Origin: There are at least three possible Celtic origins of the Chinn family name; these being;

Chinn in Irish celtic means "head"

Chinne on the coast of Wales refers to an inlet or wash where the sea flows into a river or channel amongst the rocky cliffs

Chynne in old Celtic meaning "of the valley"

Common spellings of the name are CHINN, CHIN, CHINNE, CHYNNE, CHEIN, DE CHYNNE and DE CHYNE

By my record the family arrived from Normandy as the family "de Chynne", the Norman pronunciation of the time, circa the arrival of William the conqueror (mid C11). There are several Chinn coats of arms, that depicted above being associated with the Devonshire branch of the family, and granted while on campaign cir. 1265 in Tournais, Belgium.

There are records of de Chynne also having been in Scotland as part of the unification of that territory, but the Scottish de Chynne's do not appear to have any connection to the present family, having arrived much later (circa 15th / 16th century).

The Chinn's are found throughout south western England, primarily in Cornwall, Somerset, Dorset, Devonshire and Wiltshire. The Chinn ancestral family home is purported to be located in Cornwall, though I have not determined where exactly this may be found. Since their origins in south western England, the Chinn's have emigrated and are now found across the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

While my account above addresses the Celtic origins of the name, it is the Chinese derivation which is probably best known. In 221 B.C the ruler of the western Chinese state of Qin [pronounced Ch'in] subjugated the last of six major states of Eastern Zhou and unified China. He took the title Shi Huangdi (First Emperor). The Qin Dynasty made an indelible mark on the future of China. The English "China" is derived from this as well as the anglicized version of the name Chin. There is also an Asian derivation the name anglicized as Chinn, though less common than the former spelling.
