My son would like to know the translation of his name into Irish.
His name is Blaine Hussey.
He was named after his Great-grandmother who came from Castlebar, Mayo to Canada in 1847.
His Hussey line came from Kerry (we have not found the town yet).
I obtained a translation for the name Hussey from a fellow whose last name was also Hussey and who lives in Dublin. He said "In Irish, Hussey is Mac Eodhasa (mack-oh-saa) masculine and Nic Eodhasa (nic-oh-saa) feminine". Is this correct ?
As for Blaine most baby name books I've looked at indicate that Blaine is an Irish name and means, small, thin, tiny.
Any help you can provide would be most appreciated.
Bob Hussey
