    Name Meaning

    Scottish: from the Older Scots personal name Dunecan, itself from the traditional Irish royal name Donnchad(h), derived from donn ‘brown-haired’ + cath ‘battle’. Judging by the Scots form, the Scottish Gaelic intermediary seems to have been understood as containing ceann ‘head’, as if the whole name meant ‘brown head’; compare sense 2. In Ireland the name was Anglicized as Donagh or Donaghue. Compare Donahue .

    Irish: used as an Anglicized equivalent of Gaelic Ó Duinnchinn ‘descendant of Donncheann’, a byname composed of the elements donn ‘brown-haired man’ or ‘chieftain’ + ceann ‘head’.
