Taaffe Name Meaning
Irish (of Welsh origin; chiefly Louth): topographic name from the River Taff (Glamorgan) or the River Taf (Pembrokeshire). The river names are Celtic or pre-Celtic in origin and may mean ‘dark’ or ‘stream’. It may also derive from a pet form of the Welsh personal name Dafydd the Welsh form of David although this derivation is highly improbable.
