Thread Name: Child #20 - what is Lindsay?
Subject: RE: Child #20 - what is Lindsay?
That spelling of Lindsay is generally reserved for the clan name Lindsay.
The name is sometimes - though not popularly - also applied to the Lime or the Rue which are the official floral emblems of the Lindsay Clan
So Lindsay could be a poetic name for the Lime Tree or the herb Rue.
I would think linseed would be a bit of a stretch.
