Kavanagh / Cavanagh

El apellido irlandés KAVANAGH proviene de la palabra gaélica "Caomhanach", adjetivo que denota asociación con Caomhan, en este caso St.Caomhan, uno de cuyos sucesores adoptó al primer Kavanagh, Donal, hijo de Dermot MacMurrough, rey de Leinster. Su territorio estaba en Wexford y Carlow, donde hoy se encuentran la mayoría de sus descendientes, constituyendo el sexto apellido más frecuente en Irlanda. KAVANAGH es a veces usado como sinónimo de O'Keevan -del irlandés "O'Caomhain"-, del Co.Mayo, y O'Caibhdeanigh, de Oasory. Otras variantes son: Kavanaugh, Kavanah, Kavenah, Kavanah, Kavanah, Kabana, Kavaner, Kavenaugh, Kavanacht, Cavanagh, Cavanaugh, Cavanaugh, Cavanah, Cavenah, Cavanah, Cavana, Cavana, Cavner, Cavenaugh, Cavenogh, Cavnar, Cavignac, Cavanaogh, Cavanogh y Cabanah. O'Hart los da entre las familias de la línea de Heremon, descendientes de Donal Camohanach, hijo de Dermot Na-Ghall, que es el Nº 113 en el pedigree de los MacMurroughts, reyes de Leinster. En las listas de pasajeros irlandeses llegados a Buenos Aires hasta 1880 se anotan ocho Cavanagh y nueve Kavanagh.

The name Kavanagh or Cavanaugh and the other variants of the name are derived from the Irish Gaelic name CAOMHÁNACH, which means 'a student of St. Caomhan' and was first used by Domhnall, eldest son of the 12th century King of Leinster Diarmait MacMurchad.

Domhnall was fostered for his training and education at the monastery of St. Caomhan at which is now known as Kilcavan in the Barony of Gorey, County Wexford. He became known as Caomhánach, distinguishing him from the other sons of Diarmait. His brother Eanna became known as Eanna Ceinnsealach, the name of the Clan land holdings and became the progenitor of the Kinsella Clan. The Norman knight "Strongbow", Earl of Stirgoil, leader of the Cambro/Norman invasion of Ireland married Domhnall's sister Aoife and attempted to commandeer the Kingship of Leinster following the death of King Dermot MacMurrough in 1171 A.D. However under Irish (Brehon) law, Strongbow had absolutely no basis for his claim and was promptly rejected by the Irish chiefs who elected Domhnall Caomhánach as King.

Strongbow viciously executed Domhnall's son whom he held as hostage and then bribed two Irish warriors in his own army to kill Domhnall during the Battle of Naas in 1175 A.D. These treacherous acts characterized the relationship between the Normans and the Irish for the following centuries.

The name Kavanagh in Ireland is derived from the Gaelic word 'Caomhanach' which was an eipthet to a member of the MacMurrough Sept of Leinster. The name is among the sixty most frequently found in Ireland and is most common in Counties Wexford and Carlow. Cavanagh is a variant of this name.

Origin: Irlandés.
