Name Meaning

Northern Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Gafraidh or Mac Gofraidh ‘son of Gafradh’, a Gaelic form of the Old Norse personal name Guðfróðr, composed of the elements guð ‘god’ + fróðr ‘wise’, and equivalent to English Godfrey . An alternative Gaelic form of the personal name is Gothraidh, which gave rise to McGorry . In Ireland this is a branch of the Maguires of Fermanagh.
