Name Meaning

Some characteristic forenames: Irish Conall, Donovan, Aileen, Aisling, Brendan, Ciaran, Declan, Dermot, Eamon, Fintan, Kieran, Liam.

Irish (especially Monaghan and Cavan): Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Cába ‘son of Cába’, a nickname or personal name of obscure origin. The surname belongs to a military galloglass family from the Scottish Hebrides, apparently a branch of McLeod, who were employed and settled in Cavan in the 14th century. It is likely that Mac Cába, literally ‘son of cape’, originated as a nickname for a galloglass.
