SURNAME DICTIONARY/ SLOINNTE NA h-EIREANN

An English name but more usually anglicisation of various indigenous names: Ó Cionga (L Ree); Mac Conraoi (Galway); Mac Fhearadhaigh (Oriel); Ó Maol Conaire (Roscommon); Ó Conraoi (Uí Maine) etc. An "umbrella" name, but based erroniously on the word , a king. IF & SGG.
Mac Conraoi: Conroy, King: líonmhar ach bhí Mac Conraoi i nGaillimh agus sa Chlár. Leis an mí-aistriú "King", cuirtear casadh eile agus breis doiléire sa scéal.SI.
Mac Conriain: Cunreen, King: níl ann dó anois. Bhí sé i Ros Comáin, tráth. Bunaithe ar an bhfoirm: cú + Rian (ainm pearsanta).
Ó Cingeadh: King: an-líonmhar ach baineann an sloinne Béarla le roinnt sloinnte Gaelacha éagsúla. Féach Ó Cionga, Ó Conraoi, Mac Conraoi, Mac Fhearadhaigh.IF.
Ó Cionga: King: ní fios an ann fós dó: bhain an sloinne seo le dúiche Loch Rí. Tugann de Bhulbh an litriú Ó Cingeadh, leis. Brí, dar leis, "cróga". Anois, téann an sloinne Sasanach King leis na cinn Gaelacha seo: Mac Conraoi, Mac Fhearadhaigh, Ó Maol Conaire.IF.
