The older Irish Gaelic names Amalgaid and Amhalghaidh (pronounced "owl-ghee"), were borne by an early king of Munster, and an early king of Connacht. Even though these names were of a different origin than the above Gaelicised Norse names, they were "totally confused" in the later Middle Ages with them  . a b Cresswell, Julia (1996). p. 269.

fits! – but in No Name Collins barely flouts the laws of probability. Collins himself was later to father three illegitimate children, who, one imagines, might well have agreed with the lawyer’s outburst. The revelation of the Vanstone daughters’ illegitimacy, and their consequent loss of social status and all inhe. ritance rights, is distressingly believable, and, more importantly, it opens the novel out towards all sorts of compelling moral, social and legal issues. No Name is not at all, though, a protest novel concerned with the single issue of illegitimacy, any more than Dickens’s Little Dorrit (1857) is about debtors’ prisons or Bleak House (1853) about the iniquities of Chancery.

A detailed guide to over 2000 of the most popular Irish first names. This Collins Gem is being reissued in paperback in a stylish new cover style will enliven this and 70 other best-selling Gems. Irish names are spreading across the world. As well as being more common in Ireland, they now feature in most English-speaking countries of the world. The reason for this spread is not hard to find. Massive emigration, especially during the nine- teenth -century famines, left many people of Irish descent in Britain, the USA, Canada and Australia. This Irish diaspora often had to give up the Irish language in favour of English, but they took their names with them, gave them to their children and spread them in the new countries. Indeed some, such as Brian, are now so well-established that they are no longer considered Irish. Others have developed strong associations with their new countries, so that Oscar is sometimes thought of as Scandinavian, Barry and Sheila are associated with Australia, and for most people Darren is American. What then is an Irish name? In this book a very broad view is taken, with special attention paid to what has happened to names after they left Ireland. The names come from Gaelic (and are given in Gaelic and in an anglicised form), from translations from Irish forms of non-Irish names and from Irish surnames and words. Over 2000 names included. Features names derived from the Irish language, anglicized versions of Irish names, and Irish names used in the USA and Australia. Meaning, origin and pronunciation guide given for each name.
