    Name Meaning

    English: variant of Ware , from Middle English war(e), wer(e) ‘weir, fish trap’. This word developed regularly in early modern English to ware, wear(e), wer(re), weer(e), and weir(e), but it also appears as wier, wyre, and wire, presumably from a Middle English variant wire. The name may have been given to someone employed as a wereward ‘weir-keeper’. See also Weir and Wear .

    English: in some cases, this is a habitational name from Wyre Forest or from Wyre Piddle, both in Worcestershire, probably named from a Celtic river name meaning ‘winding river’.

    Irish (Westmeath and Offaly): from Mac an Mhaoir ‘son of the steward’; see Weir 4.
