    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: Irish Brendan, Donal, Kieran, Michael Patrick, Aileen, Clancy, Eamon, Mahon, Malachy, Murph, Parnell, Sean Patrick.

    Irish (Munster): Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Mathghamhna ‘descendant of Mathghamhain’, a byname meaning ‘good calf’, a kenning for ‘bear’. There were two families in Ireland called O'Mahony , in Cork and north-east Ulster. In Ulster, Ó Mathghamhna has often been Anglicized as McMahon , apparently by analogy with the later Mac Mathghamhna chieftain family in Monaghan.
