The Spelling of Irish Names

The Proper Spelling of Your Name
Our names appeared quite differently in earlier times.
Note how the Annals of the Four Masters records and
translates these names with a Ua before them
becoming O . Is it any wonder there were so many
different spellings when each individual translated
his name into English… Below are a few examples.

Old Spelling…………New Spelling
Ua Ceallachain…. O’Callaghan
Ua Ceallaigh…… O’Kelly
Ua Ceinneidigh…. O’Kennedy
Ua Cianain…….. O’Keenan
Ua Cleirigh……. O’Clery
Ua Conchobhair…. O’Conner, O’Connor
Ua Conroi……… O’Conroy
Ua Cuinn………. O’Quinn
Ua Cuirc………. O’Quirk
Ua Dimasaigh…… O’Dempsey
Ua Donnabhain….. O’Donovan
Ua Donnghaile….. O’Donnelly
Ua Dubhagain…… Duggan
Ua Duibh………. Duff
Ua Duinn………. O’Dunne
Ua Duinnsleibhe… O’Dunlevy
Ua Failbhe…….. O’Falvey
Ua Fallamhain….. O’Fallon
Ua Fearghail…… O’Farrell
Ua Flainn……… O’Flynn, O’Lynn
Ua Fogartaigh….. O’Fogarty
Ua Gadhra……… O’Gara
Ua Gairmleaghaidh. O’Gormley

Ua Grada………. O’Grady
Ua Griobhtha…… Griffin, O’Greefa
