Name Meaning

1 Irish (County Cork): Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Murthuile, ‘descendant of Murthuile’, a personal name from murthuile ‘sea tide’ (muir ‘sea’ + tuile ‘tide’, ‘flood’).2 Irish (Donegal and Mayo): Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Murghaile ‘descendant of Murghal’, a personal name from muir ‘sea’ + gal ‘valor’.3 English: possibly of Irish origin, but it occurs chiefly in southwestern counties, suggesting that it may be a variant of the habitational name Morley , from Moreleigh in Devon.
