SURNAME DICTIONARY/ SLOINNTE NA h-EIREANN

Mac an Róthaich: Munro, Monroe: líon beag: Cúige Uladh & rl. Albanaigh gan aon agó - táid go láidir thall. Tá scéal intliúil ann gur thánadar ó Bhun Rotha i nDoire go h-Albain. Is cinnte gur thánadar ar ais i ré na plandála san 17 céad.
Monroe: Quite numerous: Belfast-Antrim etc. Scottish, possibly Scots Gaelic Mac an Ròthaich or from place-name Bun Rotha in Derry. MacLysaght says it was adopted by some Mallons and Milroys. SI & SS.
Munroe: Quite numerous: Belfast, Derry, Donegal, Galway. Scots Gaelic Mac an Ròthaich (Ròthach, a place-name?). The tradition that it derived from Bun Rotha in Derry is ingenious but not very plausible. See also Monroe. SGG, DBS, SS.
