Common Names in Ireland
during the 17th Century



On surname lists, it really pays to take the time to go down the whole thing carefully! Often names have been spelled many ways, and one needs to play with them phonetically in order not to miss one's goal due to "odd" spellings!

Also, don't forget to look through the Mc's, Mac's, O's... and also, if you have a prefix, check for those who've dropped it!
