Etymology and Origins

  1. Irving

    The patronymic of the late Sir Henry Irving was Brodribb. When he went on the stage he took the name of Irving, out of his admiration of the writings of the American author, Washington Irving. Half-a-century ago no one ever thought of entering the dramatic profession under his own name. Now that the stage has become fashionable actors need no longer be actuated to select a nom de theatre out of regard to family pride.

Examples of Irving in a Sentence

  1. Brooklyn Nets:

    Kyrie Irving has his own belief so I respect that. But we have to make a team decision. This isn't a decision about him. This is a decision about where we go as a team, and it's just not tenable for us to have a team with a player that comes in and out, no home games, only away games. What do you do in practice then ? This week we have a whole stretch of six home games, so we won't have Kyrie Irving.

  2. Joe Tsai:

    Last time [ I ] talked to him was when we made the decision that he was not going to be playing until something changes, we have n’t communicated since then. Obviously, Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving has his own belief so I respect that.

  3. Kevin Durant:

    That’s always tough when guys are in and out of the lineup, especially a starter like Kyrie. I do n’t know exactly what the plan is going forward right now, i ’m sure they’re still making decisions. That’s a better question for Steve( Nash), Sean( Marks), and Kyrie, and they ’ll fill me in when they make a decision. I ’m going to keep playing and keep focusing on what we’re focusing on in the locker room and once that gets figured out, we move forward.
