Healy Family History
Healy Name Meaning
Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hÉilidhe or Ó hÉalaighthe from a personal name possibly related to the word for ‘claimant’. However both forms more likely derive from ‘descendant of Éaladhach’ a personal name probably based on the adjective ealadhach ‘learned ingenious’.
