CUDDIHY Family History

The ancient Irish sept of O'Cuidighthigh (variously Anglicized Cudigy, Cuddihy, Cuddy, O'Cuddie, Cuddehy, Co(a)dy and Quiddihy) originated in the Leinster county of Kilkenny. The Old Gaelic "O'Cuidighthigh" translates as "Descendant of the Helpful One", from "O", grandson, male descendant of, and the genitive case of the personal byname "Cuidightheach", Helper. Primarily, Irish family names are taken from the heads of tribes and revered elders, and are usually prefixed by "O" (as above) or "Mac", denoting "son of".
