Little Family CrestThe Scottish surname Little, also found in Ireland and England, is a  translation of the Gaelic name  Ó Beagáin meaning “descendant of Beagán.” Beagán is a  personal name from the diminutive of beag meaning “small.” The Littles are descended from Richard le Lytle, himself a descendant of Hugh d'Avranches, 1st Earl of Chester, the nephew of William the Conqueror. The Littles trace their male line through the Dukes of Normandy to Ingjald, the last Yngling Peace King of Uppsala, Sweden who ruled in the mid 7th century AD. The name was brought to Ireland by Scottish settlers in the 17th Century and is predominantly found in north east Ireland.
