DONAGHY Family History

This interesting surname, of Irish origin with variant spellings Donaghie, Donaghy, Donagy, Donaghey and Denaghy, is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic "MacDonnchaidh", meaning "son of Donnchadh", a personal name composed of the elements "donn", brown, and "cath", meaning "battle". Traditionally, Irish family names are taken from the heads of tribes, revered elders, or from some illustrious warrior, and are usually prefixed by "O", meaning grandson or male descendant of, or "Mac", denoting "son of".
