We use the surnames to dig up their Irish roots. This is a important and sound technique, because surnames can often point to the Irish county from which your ancestors came. However, surnames aren’t the only type of name you can use to trace your Irish ancestry. Thanks to common traditional naming patterns across the country in the 19th century, first names can also often provide an important clue as to the identities of your elusive family members. Here’s how:
Nineteenth-century Irish family naming patterns usually followed the guidelines in the list below pretty closely:

1. The oldest son was named after the father’s father.

2. The oldest daughter was named after the mother’s mother.

3. The second son was named after the mother’s father.

4. The third son was named after the father.

5. The fourth son was named after the father’s oldest brother.

6. The second daughter was named after the father’s mother.

7. The third daughter was named after the mother.

8. The fourth daughter was named after the mother’s oldest sister.
