Rose would be Róis

The "Mc" would become "Nic" if McCole is your maiden name, and "Mhic" if it is your married name.

I'm not sure about the "cole" part.

Unless, you can find the actual clan spelling, you can probably use Róis Nic Cól or Róis Mhic Cól
which would be the phonetic spelling. That may acutally be it, but you can always check around.

Nic Cóil or Mhic Cóil. The i is important, too.

In all honesty, phonetical translations are sometimes, but rarely right.
But I'd go with 'Róis'.
Mac Cole is translated as
'Ní Chomhghaill' for a woman's maiden name.
'Mhic Comhghaill' for a married name.

The 'gh' in 'Comhghaill' is silent and therefore the name is sometimes spelt more modernly as 'Chomhaill' without these two letters-it's your preferance-both are correct.
Many irish names have a silent 'gh' or 'dh' and are spelt both with and without.for example:

-Mac Ruaidhrí or Mac Ruairí
-Ó Laoighre or Ó Laoire

Thank you very much Laigheanach!
I have been trying to learn Irish on my own ( with help of a book and tape set) However I could never find my name.
I'm so glad I found this site.
There's much to see and learn here!
Thank you again!
Bairbre Aine Nic Aonghuis
