"Dublin" is an Anglicism of "Dubh Linn". In the old script, 'bh' was written with a dot placed over the 'b' - thus appearing to be Dub Linn or Dublinn. The Norman-speaking English who arrived in Old Irish-speaking Ireland in 1169 omitted the "dot" (or sÃƒÂ©imhiÃƒÂº in Irish), and spelled the town's name as 'Dublin.'
Some have suggested that "Dublin" is of Scandinavian origin: "djÃƒÂºp lind" ("deep pond"). However, the name "Dubh Linn" pre-dates the arrival of the Vikings in Ireland, and the Old Norse name is simply the words "Dubh Linn" re-spelled as if they were Old Norse: Dyflinn (correctly pronounced "DUEV-linn' ).
Therefore, we selected "Dubh Linn" as a way of tying two cultures together - the Scandinavian heritage of Northern Minnesota and the Irish traditions of fine spirits, good company, and a comfortable atmosphere you only find in a pub.
