Those seeking to honor their Irish ancestry will love the name Farrell. This masculine name comes from the Irish surname Ó Fearghail and means “man of valor” and “descendant of Fearghail.” The Ó Fearghails were a noble family in County Longford and are historically the Princes of Annaly. This powerful clan was invaded by the English throughout the 12th and 13th centuries but heroically regained rulership by the 15th century. A name worthy of a warrior, baby Farrell will always have the courage to stand up for themselves.
