Origin of the Name Boal

The ancient history of the name Boal was found in the archives.
Over the centuries Surnames developed a wide number of variants. Different spellings of the same name can be traced back to an original root. Additionally when a bearer of a name emigrated it was not uncommon that their original name would be incorrectly transcribed in the record books at their new location. Surnames were also often altered over the years based on how they sounded phonetically and depending on the prevailing political conditions it may have been advantageous to change a name from one language to another.
Variants of the name Boal include Boyle, Bowles, Bole, Boler, Boaler, Bowle, Boule and Boules. These names can be of both Irish and English origin. When of English origin the name Boal is most often a synonym of the names Bowles and Bowle. As such it was introduced into Ulster Province by settlers who arrived from England and Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century. When of Irish origin the name Boal is often a synonym of the name Boyle, from the Gaelic O'Baoighill sept located in the North-West of the country, taken from the Gaelic word 'geall' meaning 'pledge'. In modern times the name Boal is most often found in Counties Antrim and Down.
The Boal 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 Boal descendants.
