Origin of the Name Haverty

The ancient history of the name Haverty was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. The name Haverty in Ireland is often a variant form of the name Faverty which in turn is a variant of Faherty, taken from the native Gaelic O'Fathartaigh sept of County Galway .
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.
Haverty is today rendered as O'hAbhartaigh and can also be derived from the O'Flaithbheartaigh sept who more usually anglicized their name as O'Flaherty or as Flaverty. This name translates from Irish as 'bright ruler'. 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. It is in the Western counties and especially in the ancestral homeland county of Galway that the majority of descendants bearing these names can still today be most often found.
The Haverty 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 Haverty descendants.
