    Name Meaning

    This is said to be the same name as Meriadek or Meiradwg, and also as the] Irish name O'Muireadwg, and the Scotch Mac Muireadaigh and Muir- eadhach. O'Reilly, however, renders the Irish word muireadach 'a sovereign, a lord j also a man's name, Morogh.' It means rather l admiral,' literally protector of the sea; from muir the sea, eadhach protector. I derive the British name from mawreddwg, mawreddig, magnificent, great, from mawr, great.
