Name Meaning

Irish: Anglo-Norman French patronymic from the personal name Gerald ( see Garrett ). The name was formed by the addition of the Anglo-Norman French prefix fi(t)z ‘son of’ (Latin filius) to the personal name. The Gaelicized form Mac Gearailt is common in the Gaelic-speaking areas of West Kerry.
