CONVERY Family History

This is an Irish surname. It is understood to originate from the pre 10th century Gaelic Mac Ainmhire, meaning 'The descendant of the fierce one'. Many, indeed the majority of Gaelic Irish surnames, originate from the nickname for the first chief. Surnames which contain elements of nobility, toughness, and victory, perhaps not surprisingly dominate the lists. This particular name, despite its 'appealing' origin is quite rare, being particularly associated with the county of Derry in Ulster, and specifically Lough Neagh, but is not often found in any numbers in other areas of Ireland.
