Lennan: v.rare. Dublin see Lennon
Lennon: v.numerous. Ulster generally, South East, E. Galway – Mayo, etc.. IR O’Lionáin, O’Leannáin. The derivation may be from leann, a cloak, or leannán, a lover, paramour. In any event there were distinct septs in Fermanagh, Galway and Cork. The name has been changed in some cases to Leonard an English name q.v. IF.
Lenane: rare. Cork. See Linnane
Lannin, -on –en: mod.nos. all areas especially South East. IR. O’Leannáin or O’Lonáin. See Lennon.
Linnane: numerous. Clare, Kerry, Limerick, Galway, etc.. IR O’Linneán (SGA), O’Lionnáin for which see Lennon. Originally from Kerry and distinct from Lennon (SI, MIF & SGG).
Glennon: numerous. Midlands, Galway, etc.. IR. Mag Leannáin (leann=cloak). MacLysaght notes that it may be O’Gloinín in Connacht. (SI & SGG).

MacLennon – Lennon. Usually Scottish, it is certainly also a variant of Mac Lenaghan and according to Woulfe also of MacAlinion and MacAlonan. In Co. Galway he makes it MacLoineáin, but as they were MacAlenan in the 17th Century, MacAilgheanáin is a preferable alternative.
O’Lennon, Lennan O’Leannáin (possibly from leann, a cloak or mantle; leanán paramour has also been suggested). This is the name of several distinct septs located respectively in Cos. Cork, Fermanagh and Galway. The last named is of the Sodhan pre-Gaelic stock. The Fermanagh family were erenaghs of Lisgoole. O’Leannùain is also used as a synonym of Lineen (O’Luinín) another Fermanagh erenagh family. Further confusion arises from the fact that these have been widely changed to the English name Leonard IF. See also Linnegar.
(O)Len(n)ane. See Linnane.
(O)Lannon. A form of Lennon found in Co. Kilkenny.
(O)Linnane, O’Linneáin & O’Lionnáin. A West Munster name much confused with Lennon IF.
(Mac)Glennon, Mag Leannáin. The basic word in this name is leann = cloak. This name belongs to the midland counties (Westmeath, Leix and Offaly) where it is quite numerous. In Co. Roscommon it is probably the Uí Fiachrach name O’Gloinín. MacGleenan Mac Giolla Fhinéin. This form is found in Co. Armagh.
Glenane. A variant of Glennon nearer to the Irish form found in Co. Tipperary.

LENNON, John, sailor, b. Downpatrick 1768. Performed various daring feats. Safely brought his ship ‘Hibernia’ through American fleet 1812; beat off attack of American privateer after 9 hour fight 1814; d. Devonport about 1842.

Dictionary of National Biography” Vol. XI OUP ISBN 0-19-865113-9 (Vol. XI)
Lennon, John (1768-1842?) master mariner was born at Downpatrick, Ireland in 1768. He is stated to have served as a midshipsman in the Royal Navy during the American war. In 1796 when in command of the schooner Favourite of Martinique carrying letters of marque he was very severely wounded and his ship was taken after a fierce engagement of 1 hour & 20 minutes duration by a French privateer of very superior force. In 1798 he was in command of the General Keppel, also of Martinique which was capsized in a white squall on passage to Philadelphia when Lennon and some of his crew were rescued by a passing schooner, after suffering great perils and hardship. Lennon performed various daring feats in the West Indies in 1806-9 but his most remarkable exploits were in the Hibernia, a Cowes built barque, carrying six guns and about 22 men and boys all told in which he traded for some years from the West Indies island of St. Thomas. In 1812 orders were issued that no vessels should leave the island without convoy on account of the American privateers. The Hibernia and three other merchantmen whose aggregate cargoes were valued at £1/2 M had long been waiting. Unwilling to detain them longer, Governor MacLean agreed to their sailing without convoy on condition of Lennon hoisting his pennant as commodore. Although harassed by the Rossie, Commodore Barney, an American privateer of superior force, Lennon brought his vessels safe into the English Channel on 18/10/1812. Two years later Lennon was attacked on 19/7/1814 by the schooner Comet of Baltimore US, an American privateer of 16 guns and 136 men which he beat off after a 9 hour fight in which 12 out of his crew of 22 hands were killed or wounded. Two lawsuits followed with the underwriter of the Hibernia’s cargo & Lennon and his owners were cast in £8000 damages, or more than double the loss that would have occurred if Lennon had surrendered. Lennon died at Devonport after 1841. (Naval & Military Gazettes 24 July, 7 August, 21 August and 18 September 1814 by David Burn. See Burn’s Chivalry of the Merchant Marine, London 1841 and Brenton’s Naval History Vol. II).

“….The Jesuits however had a chapel in Mass-lane (present Chancery Place beside the Four Courts) and they kept a school for the young. Fr. Henry Fitzsimon SJ returned to Dublin about 1597 clebrated High Mass with a variety of musical instruments, and instituted the Children of Mass Sodality. Apparently it was he who started the school in Mass Lane. At all events he was joined in 1603 by two other Jesuits Fathers Kearney and Lennon, in teaching the youth of Dublin. The school was still working in 1605. It may indeed have continued up to 1614, the year Catholic schools were suppressed…”
