McMenamy Family HistoryThis interesting surname, with variant spellings MacMenamy, MacMenamie and MacMenemy, is an Anglicized form of the Old Gaelic "MacMeanma". The Gaelic prefix "Mac" means "son", plus the personal name "Meanma", "mind, courage or spirit". Traditionally, Irish family names are taken from the heads of tribes or from some illustrious warrior, and are usually prefixed by "O", grandson, male descendant of, or "M(a)c", son of. This surname is particularly widespread in the Ulster county of Tyrone from which it spread to Scotland.
