Lyndall is a character in Oliver Schreiner's novel 'Story of an African farm' and was based on her mother's maiden name, Rebecca Lyndall, who came out to South Africa with her husband Gotlob from England. I want to know the meaning of this name. So far i have only assumptions about the meaning - 'dall' meaning perhaps 'dale' or 'valley' and 'Lyn' meaning perhaps 'lime tree' or just 'lime'?
