Meaning & Origins

Anglicized form of the medieval Gaelic name Mael Coluim ‘devotee of St Columba’. Columba was a 6th-century monk of Irish origin who played a leading part in the conversion to Christianity of Scotland and northern England; see also Callum and Colm. He has always been one of the most popular saints in Scotland, but in the Middle Ages it was felt to be presumptuous to give the names of saints directly to children; instead their blessing was invoked by prefixing the name with mael ‘devotee of’ or gille ‘servant of’. Since the 1930s the given name has been used widely in the English-speaking world, not just by those with Scottish connections.

English: 1. habitational name from Sidney in Surrey and Lincolnshire, so named from Old English sīd ‘wide’ + ēg ‘island’, ‘dry island in a fen’, with the adjective retaining traces of the weak dative ending, originally used after a preposition and definite article. Two places in Cheshire called Sydney are from Old English sīd + halh ‘nook’, ‘recess’ and may also be sources of the surname. 2. possibly a habitational name from a place in Normandy called Saint-Denis, from the dedication of its church to St. Dionysius (see Dennis). There is, however, no evidence to support this derivation beyond occasional early modern English forms such as Seyndenys, which may equally well be the result of folk etymology.
