Name Meaning

Some characteristic forenames: Irish Brendan, Kieran, Seamus, Siobhan, Dermot, Liam, Nuala, Bridie, Brigid, Conor, Fintan, John Patrick.

Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Néill ‘descendant of Niall’, an Irish personal name possibly derived from néal ‘cloud’ (see Neil ).

History: Bearers of this surname mostly claim descent from Niall Noígíallach (Niall of the Nine Hostages), a legendary king of Ireland who flourished in the 5th century. His descendants, the Ui Neill dynasty, dominated Ireland, on and off, from the 6th to the 10th century. The surname itself can be traced with some confidence to one of these descendants, namely Niall Glúndubh mac Aodha (died 919), High King of Ireland from 911 to 919, with a power base in Tyrone, Ulster.
