Dave MacFarlane, 46, Scottish footballerHis surname is an addition to the "Phrases in Names" pattern-cluster ... as in the "Far lane", and speaking of "lane" note the title of my earlier post today re: Layne Redmond RIIP: Red Mound and Grateful Dead
We now have a "Lane/Layne" pattern-cluster in the works. When I think of someone as being in the "far lane" this usually means they are in the "passing lane". Note the etymology re http://surnames.behindthename.com/name/mac00pharlain:
Means "son of Parlan". Parlan most likely comes from the given name Partholon meaning "spirit of the waves".My name is Ocean... which waves are an important part of... many waves one ocean!!
