Irish Gaelic Woman with Patronymic Byname

Last updated 10 Nov 2006  

Name with Patronymic for an Irish Gaelic Woman

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.
