Origin of the Name Millerick



The ancient history of the name Millerick was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variants of the Irish name Millerick include Milerick, Milericke, Mellerick, Melerick, Mellericke, Mullerick and many others. This name is derived from the Gaelic 'Maoilgheric sept name which is thought to mean 'devote of Saint Cyriacus'. It was not at all uncommon in ancient Ireland for surnames to be adapted to honor Saints. Saint Cyriacus was a fourth century martyr and is one of twenty-seven Saints who bear the name.
A sept or clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory. Irish septs and clans that are related often belong to even larger groups, sometimes called tribes.
When Gaelic names were anglicized during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries they were often changed to Anglo equivalents that sounded most like their original Gaelic name. Millerick and its most often found variation of Mellerick are most associated with Cork in the very south of Ireland but also with the northern Counties of Connaught .
The Millerick coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Millerick descendants.
