Mullaney Name Meaning

Irish (Connacht): Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Maoil Sheanaigh ‘descendant of Maoilsheanaigh’, a personal name meaning ‘devotee of (Saint) Seanach’, a personal name based on sean ‘ancient’, ‘old’. Because most Connacht spellings omit the Sh (pronounced as h), it has been suggested that the original name might have been Ó Maoileanaigh ‘descendant of Maoileanach’, a personal name meaning ‘chief of the marsh’. There was a different Ulster family of this name, now extinct in Ireland.
