Meaning & Origins

Irish (Munster): reduced form of McSheehy, an Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Síthigh‘son of Sítheach’, a personal name from the adjective sítheach ‘peaceful’ or ‘otherworldly’. (The noun síth, from which this adjective derives, means basically ‘settlement’, hence both ‘peace’ and ‘place inhabited by otherworld beings’.) In some cases the name may be a reduced Anglicized form of Ó Síthigh, ‘descendant of Sítheach’, a later form of the Irish name.
