Origin of Acha, Meaning of Acha

Origin: Donnachaidh is one of the oldest Scottish clans, arriving in Scotland from Irish Picts anywhere from 40-90 AD. My particular surname, Donachy, I have been told is a 'hideout' name members of the clan took after Culloden in 1746. Being a Highland Clan, we were not on the winning side that day. Go to for a good overview history. The clan is listed under the great hall. It's also known as Clan Robertson. I'm sure what I'm telling you, you already know about. If any info on the name Donachy could be shared, I'd greatly appreciate it. There's not too many of us :)

Origin of Acha, Meaning of Acha

Origin: The surname derives from old irish O'Meachair - meaning is hospital. Known to our family is the turn of phrase Meagher of the Sword. I originate from the Meagher Wedgers - origin is still unknown. Maher is the Englaish version of the name as it is easier to pronounce. The actual pronouncation is Ma' hair or Ma'her and not Mock'er or Meager. In Ireland Meagher originated in Counties Waterford, Tipperary(as in our family).
Their is alot to be found on this great Irish name.
