This name is often translated as Fox . 2. according to Woulfe, a reduced Anglicized form of Ó Sionaigh , a variant of Ó Seanaigh (whence Shanny ) ‘descendant of Seanach’, from a personal name meaning ‘old’, ‘wise’. However, it was understood as Ó Sionnaigh ‘descendant of fox’ and often translated as Fox in Connacht.
