The Oxford Dictionary of Family Names of Ireland

Kay Muhr and Liam Ó hAisibéil

  • An extensive introduction gives the history and formation of Irish family names, of Gaelic and English-language origin, and the research methods and sources used to compile this dictionary
  • Covers over 3,800 family names in Ireland, both the Republic and Northern Ireland, including variant spellings, that had more than 100 bearers in the 1911 Census of Ireland
  • Each entry contains the name's frequency in 1911, its main locations in both 1847-64 and 1911, its language/culture of origin, and an explanation of its meaning. Many entries also include extensive lists, in historical order, of early bearers as recorded in major Irish-language and administrative sources, ranging from the medieval period to the nineteenth century
