Origin of the Name Tilly

The Tilly family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variants Talty, O'Tally, Tally, Tilly, Tully. This name in Irish is O Tailtigh and the latter variants are the anglicized forms of this. This sept came from Clare. A sept or clan was a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory. The older form of the name in Gaelic is O Taichligh as found in the Four Masters and the Topographical Poem of O'Dugan. This form was found in Counties Tyrone and Fermanagh. The form Tully is found in County Galway the county that is nearest Clare their place of origin. In this part of the country it is also abbreviated to MacAtilla. In modern times this name is found mostly in its original territory.
The Tilly 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 Tilly descendants.
