LINGO SURNAME ORIGIN

HELLO FELLOW LINGOS!

I HAVE INFO FROM A SURNAME RESEARCHER IN ENGLAND
THAT "LINGO" IS PROBABLY OF NORMAN DESCENT(THAT WOULD EXPLAIN MY PARENTS TELLING ME IT'S "FRENCH") AND AFTER
THE NORMAN INVASION OF ENGLAND IT WAS ANGLICISED (THUS
THE SURNAME LINGO). ENGLAND DOES HAVE A COAT OF ARMS ON RECORD AS WELL. I'M SEEING INFO THAT THERE'S A SCOTTISH
CONNECTION- THAT LINGO IS A SEPT OF GRAHAM. DOES ANYONE
HAVE ANY INFO? CAN ANYONE GIVE ME THE NAMES OF ANY
GOOD RESOURCES, BOOKS, WEBSITES, ETC TO RESEARCH THE ENGLAND/SCOTLAND CONNECTION? I GUESS I'M LOOKING FOR SOLID EVIDENCE. I KNOW ABOUT THE CLAN GRAHAM SOCIETY BUT I'D LIKE
TO SEE IT FROM OTHER SOURCES AS WELL(ESPECIALLY SOURCES STRAIGHT FROM SCOTLAND).LIKE MOST OF YOU, I'VE BEEN ASKED MY WHOLE LIFE, "WHAT NATIONALITY IS LINGO?" I'D REALLY LIKE TO BE ABLE TO GIVE AN ANSWER AND FEEL SURE ABOUT IT (FRENCH? ENGLISH? SCOTTISH? ITALIAN?) HELP!
