Name Meaning

Irish: shortened form of MacCovey, an Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Cobhthaigh (see Coffey ).

English: unexplained. Covey is used of ‘pantry’ in the early modern period and covey ‘little chap’ (a diminutive of cove, Middle English cof ‘bold, eager, courageous’; see Cove ) in the early nineteenth century, but there is no evidence to confirm either as the source for the surname.
