the name is Fai'lenn du la Maurienne
For the given name:
"Irish Names". O Corrain, Donnchadh & Maguira, Fidelma p93:
Meaning, perhaps, ' a graceful woman '. .... Another king of Cashel,
Fai'lbe Flann (637/9), had a daughter called Fai'lenn.
For the Surname:
"Dictionnaire Etymologique des Noms de Famille", Morlet, Marie-The're`se. p
Maurienne, n. de re'gion d'origine La Maurienne, valle'e de Savoie
I don't speak french, but I'm guessing that says, Of the region Maurienne,
valley of Savoie...
Also, because the gender needs to be in agreement, is it du la or de la?
