    Name Meaning

    Irish (Donegal and Derry) and Scottish (Glasgow): Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Conghail (sometimes Mac Conghaile), a patronymic from the personal name Conghal, composed of ancient Celtic elements meaning ‘hound’ + ‘valor’. In this form of the surname the -c in mac has been voiced to -g, and the fricative -gh- has become the plosive -g-, as Mag Congail.
