Etemology of Lillis Name
Posted by: Christian Lillis Date: October 30, 2001 at 11:40:02
  of 227

Hey All,

I was wondering if anyone knew the ethnic or national origin of the Lillis name. I am from New York, one of very few Lillises, most of whom I don't believe I am directly related to. My father's father was an orphan and we're not sure where his name came from. My mother's family is Irish, which is how I've always identified myself. I was just wondering where the name started. Any hints would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,


Christian Lillis
