What’s Your Last Name Say About You?

It doesn’t matter how you celebrate it, on St. Patrick’s Day, we all become a little Irish. We wear our green, we drink our drinks, we search for four leaf clovers… and our friend we lost while we were drinking our drinks.


However you decide to Irish, it’s up to you. As for us with Ireland in our blood, it’s an entirely different thing. It’s about pride in a country, pride in a people, pride in a passion for life, love, and friends.

I’m a Moore, not the most common Irish name, but I am of Irish decent on my Father’s side. In fact, the old “IrishMoore last name is commonly found to originate with the Gaelic ‘O’Mordha’ – ‘O’ of course meaning descendant of, and ‘Mordha’, meaning great, chief, mighty or proud. Yeah – that’s me to a “T”. Family names are cool – and so is finding out more about your name and heritage!

What's My Last Name Mean?

And I’ll leave you with an Irish Blessing for the night:
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
