Meaning of the baby name OISEIN.

  

OISEIN.  A Scottish form of Irish Oisín (q.v.), meaning "fawn."  Ossian is another Scottish form.

... In the tale of "Dearg" reference is made to Oisein's mother having been enchanted, wooed and won under form of a deer, and in regard to this the late Rev. John Forbes of Sleat, Skye, mentions in some of his notes in connection with his, as yet, unpublished translation of Ossian's poems, that he, in 1858, interviewed at Kirivig (?) Callanais, Isle of Lewis, one Murdoch McKay, aged 96, who recited to him the tale of Ossian being born of a doe; in addition to numerous pieces introducing Fionn, Oscar, Caoilte, Diarmad, etc... (Gaelic Names of Beasts, Forbes, 1905)
