Laing Family HistoryThis Scottish name is derived from the Old English pre 7th Century Lang meaning 'long' or 'tall', and would have been used as a nickname to describe such a person. It may also be derived from the Gaelic O Longain 'descendant of Longan', a personal name coming from long or tall. Variations in the idiom of the spelling include Lang, Long, Lange, Lainge, Laying, etc.. Recordings include one Janet Laing who married Robert Lawson in Edinburgh on April 20th 1597. Margaret Laing married Andrew Scott in Edinburgh on May 13th 1600.
