Name Meaning

1 English and Irish (of Norman origin): habitational name from Arcy in Manche, France, named from a Gaulish personal name (which, it has been suggested, may be akin to the Indo-European root ars- ‘bear’) + the locative suffix -acum.2 Irish: English surname adopted by bearers of the Gaelic surname Ó Dorchaidhe ‘descendant of the dark one’, from dorcha ‘dark’, ‘gloomy’. This Connacht name has fallen together with the Norman surname, which is certainly attested in Ireland, having been introduced there by Sir William D’Arcy and Sir John D’Arcy , who was appointed Chief Justiciar of Ireland in the 14th century.
