The Bradley's from Inishowen Co. Donegal

Irish Naming Traditions

These are just a general guideline as there are likely to be regional differences, e.g. in West Cork, the oldest daughter seems to have been named after the father's mother, not the mother's mother.

Oldest son named after the Father's father
2nd son named after the Mother's father
3rd son named after the Father
4th son named after the Father's oldest brother

Oldest daughter named after the Mother's mother
2nd daughter named after the Father's mother
3rd daughter named after the Mother
4th daughter named after the Mother's oldest sister

2nd wife's oldest daughter named after the first wife, using her full name
