Origin of the Name Trainor

The ancient history of the name Trainor 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 Trainor
include McTraynor, Trainer, Traynor, Treanor, McCrainor and McCreanor. This name is taken from the Gaelic MacThreinfhir, meaning 'son of the strong man', or 'champion'. The 'Mac' is still mostly retained in the variant form McCrainor, which is phonetically correct. McCreanor is the form of the name which occurs in the County Armagh Hearth Money Rolls of 1664, and in the Monaghan Hearth Money Rolls the name is found as McTreanor. In modern times Trainor and its variants are mostly found in the districts of Dungannon, Monaghan, Armagh, and in the County Dublin area.
The Trainor 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 Trainor descendants.
