Comiskey Family HistoryRecorded in many spellings including MacComiskey, MacCumisky, MacCumesky, and the short forms commencing Mc, as well as many without the suffix at all such as Comiskey, Cumeskey, Commiskey, and Comaskey, this is an Irish surname. It derives from the pre 10th century Olde Gaelic surname "Mac Cumascaigh", translating as the son of Cumascach, the latter being a personal name meaning powerful! It is said that the adjective cumascach refers to mental powers as well as physical ability, although it has to be said that most early Irish surnames have a "warrior" base.
