An Irish Gaelic woman could use two different kinds of bynames (surnames) in her name. The kind created by this generator a patronymic byname indicated who her father was, usually by his given name, that is, his first name. A patronymic byname did not say anything at all about what clan she belonged to! Any name generated below could be the name of a member of the O'Donnel clan, the O'Boyle clan, the Maguire clan, or any other Irish Gaelic clan of the era. (For a byname that does indicate clan affiliation, see Irish Gaelic Woman with Clan Affiliation Byname.)
To create an Irish Gaelic name for a woman using a patronymic byname, select a given name (first name) for her from the pop up list on the left and a given name (first name) for her father from the pop up list on the right, below. That's all there is to it -- the correct grammatical changes have already been made to her father's name.
