Seán Patrick Ely (dhcp-31-42.labs.bgsu.edu - 129.1.31.42)

My name is Sean Patrick Ely, I was wondering what my middle and last name would translate into in terms of gaelic. I plan to have my last name incorporated into a Celtic Trinity knot for a design. But, I don't know what it translates to. All help is appreciated. Thank you.

-Seán

Seán Pádraig (The 'd' is often not pronounced in Irish).

MacLysaght lists the surname Ely but without the Irish version or any other useful information. I wonder if it's the same as Ó hÉilidhe (pr. O HAY-lee). That surname is usually anglicized as Healy and Hely. An bhfuil 'fhios ag éinne eile anseo?
