MCCAUGHEY Family History

Despite its similarity in sound to (Mc)Coffey or Coffee, the "roots" of this name are quite different, the (Mac)Caughey clan being from the Ulster region. The Gaelic spelling is MacEachaidy, "Eachaidh" being usually Anglicized to Aghy or Oghy, and as such it remains a rare Christian name in modern Ireland. The precise translation is uncertain, but it is probably "the son (Mac) of the youthful one", "Eachaidh" being equivalent to the lad, or boy, or similar. Various spelling forms exist, including: McGaughey, McGaughie, McGauhy, McGahey, McGahy, McGaffey, Megahey and Gaffey, and despite their varied spellings, all have the same source.
