    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: Irish Brendan, Fergus, Dermod, Dermot, Aidan, Bridie, Clancy, Colm, Fitzgerald, Kieran, Kiernan, Liam.Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Diarmada ‘son of Diarmaid’, a personal name that may be based on di- + farmat ‘envy’, hence meaning ‘free from envy’. The name Diarmaid was borne in Celtic legend by the lover of Gráinne, and, in historical times, by Diarmaid Mac Murchadha, the 12th-century king of Leinster whose appeal to the English for support led directly to the Anglo-Norman presence in Ireland. Compare the Scottish form McDiarmid . There has been confusion with Ó Duibhdhiorma, see Dearman .
