Etymology of the name OISIN.
Meaning of the baby name OISIN.

  

OISÍN.  Irish name meaning "fawn."  Scottish Oisein and Ossian.  This was the name of a poet said to have been born of a doe. 

    In Irish Oisín, pronounced "Esheen," or "Ussheen."  However, the Scotch Gaelic form has, thanks to the genius of Macpherson, so overshadowed the Irish one that it may be allowed to remain. (A Literary History of Ireland, Hyde, 1899).

... When the Fianna are broken up at last, after hundreds of years of hunting, it is doubtful that he (Finn) dies at all, and certain that he comes again in some other shape, and Oisin, his son, is made king over a divine country... (Gods and Fighting Men, Gregory, 1905)
