Lynn-Blair Connection in Scotland

This is in case there's any male Lynn who's had a Y-DNA test and did not match other Lynns but did match Blairs. I've been tracking one particular Lynn family in the Scottish census and found the following, which suggests that a boy whose father was a Blair had his name changed to his mother's maiden name - Lynn.

1861 Census of Scotland - E.D. 1, Larbert, Stirlingshire
William Brisbane, age 18, Head, b. St Ninians, Stirlingshire, Ploughman
Agnes Brisbane, age 22, Wife, b. IRE
John B. Blair, age 2, Stepson, b. Larbert

1871 Census of Scotland - E.D. 1, Larbert, Stirlingshire
William Brisbane, age 28, Head, b. St Ninians, Stirlingshire, Railway Labourer
Agnes Brisbane, 31, Wife, b. Ballymena, Antrim, IRE
John B. Lynn, 12, Son, b. Larbert, Iron Moulder??
And younger children listed as Brisbanes.
