    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: Irish Brendan, Brennan, Cormac, Donal, Finbar, Seamus, Conan, John Patrick, Padraic, Patrick Michael.

    Irish: shortened Anglicized form of either of two Gaelic names, Ó Duibhín ‘descendant of Duibhín’, a byname meaning ‘little black one’, or Ó Daimhín ‘descendant of Daimhín’, a byname meaning ‘little stag, little ox’. These are attenuated versions of Ó Dubháin and Ó Damháin, and are the phonetic origin of Anglicized forms with an internal v (as opposed to w, as in Dewan , or monosyllabic forms with an o or u) (see Doane ). Compare Devin 1.

    English, Irish, and French: variant of Devin 2.
