Aidan Lynch

“It’s time-out as trained mediwizards hurry onto the field to examine Aidan Lynch!”
-- Ludo Bagman, calling the World Cup match (GF8)

Commentary

Etymology

The name Aidan is derived from Irish Gaelic Aodhán, a familiar form of Aodh, meaning "fiery, bringer of fire" (Wikipedia).

Lynch is from Irish Ó Loingsigh "descendant of Loingseach", a name meaning "mariner" (Behind the Name).

Notes

Like the other members of the Irish National Team, Lynch is named for one of J.K. Rowling's friends:

"The Irish Quidditch team players are all named after people I have known." (JKR)
