Eachann Keane...

I'm a horse... or a horse lord. But at least it sounds cool. (Pronouned ECH-unn)

Though most of my real Irish ancestors had names like Budd... or Fionlagh
Mark: blondboywondermark on April 29th, 2005 04:11 pm (UTC)
LOL! Yep...I had Irish ancestors too...one named Bud...there was a Robert and a Mary! The two last names that immediately pop to mind are both Mcs...McCoy and McComas!

Yeah, my Scottish anscestors, who came from Ireland WAAAAY back, were the Fionladdsons and before that the Fionlagh

Translated Fionlagh is "Findlay" or "White Hero"

So we were sons of Findlay who shows up in... the Ulster cycle I believe of Irish myth, and then when we emigrated we became the McKinlays

A countryman! My older sis and I did lots of genealogical research way back when and came up with tons of stuff! Mostly folks you wouldn't know...but at a certain point we hit royalty...and knowing how the European royals intermarried so much, we found that we were a real hodge-podge ethnically! My older sis isn't into history like I am and so didn't recognize most of the names...but...for just a few, try these on...Robert the Bruce, Charlemagne, King John ("Lackland", brother of Richard the Lionheart and son of Henry and Eleanor of Aquitaine)...there were many English, French and Scandinavian Kings, Queens, etc...as well as royalty from just about every other country in Europe. My sis didn't understand why I was so excited...LOL! We also found Cherokee and Mongolian! Anyhoo...what does this get me? Nada, zip, zero...but I get a major kick out of it!

My grandmother on my father's side's maiden name is Thatcher

I'm related the the heugonauts (sp?) as well.

Mom's maiden name is McKinley. My four times (if i rememebr) great uncle is president McKinley

Can't remember what sort of Native american I've got. But I do remember I'm 1/16 Mom actually qualifies for membership in some tribe or another if she wanted.

LOL...I'm 1/16th through my dad! Isn't that funny that that actually qualifies?! I'm blond and blue-eyed...not many would pick me out as a Cherokee!

you do know each time you put in your name and hit enter you get a different name?
Markboywondermark on May 1st, 2005 02:48 am (UTC)
LOL! That's cheating! It also tells me that you didn't like the first name you got!
dendroidmandendroidman on May 2nd, 2005 06:56 am (UTC)
lol actually my curiosity got the best of me.

hey there
I know my real Irish last name it's McFadyen. But we're a strange blend in my family - I have Irish, Scottish, Swedish, German, Jewish and um ... that's it. Dude, your pics are such a prick tease especially the guy in the cowboy hat. I should know a cowboy hat ;)

Re: hey there
LOL...Glad you like the icons, fj!

I'm a melting pot of ethnic types myself!

You should know a cowboy hat? Are you a Texan or from one of the western states? Maybe Western Canadian or an Aussie? Argentinian?
