Origin of the Name Haughey

The origin of the name Haughey was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variants of Haughey include McCaughey, McCaghy, Haughie, Haughy and Hoey. This name in Irish is O'hEachaidh and the latter variants are the anglicized forms of this. This sept came from Ulster .
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.
We find the name in two areas of Ulster , they being Counties Donegal and Fermanagh and the Oriel country around Counties Armagh and Monaghan. This name normally has the 'O' prefix but occasionally appears with the prefix 'Mac' and in County Tyrone the variants McCaughey and McCaghy are common. The Registrar General also records Hoy in Antrim and Haffey in Armagh as synonyms. The sept was located in the Glenard area in the 1609 Armagh Church Lands Inquisition and the best known of the name was Charles J. Haughey, who was Taoiseach (Prime Minister) of Ireland .
The Haughey 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 Haughey descendants.
