LAVERTY Family HistoryThis notable surname, chiefly found in the Province of Ulster, is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic "O'(Fh)laithbheartaigh" or "MacFhlaithbheartaigh". Traditionally, Irish family names are taken from the heads of tribes, or some illustrious warrior, and are usually prefixed by "O", grandson, male descendant of, or "mac", son of. In this instance, the personal name "Flaighbheartach" is composed of the elements "flaith", prince, ruler, and "beartach", doer of valiant deeds, which points to the noble origins of the clan.
