Hello, I just found this site by accident, but I'm hoping someone can answer a question about an Irish name I've been researching. It would be a name that could have been used in the 14th to 15th century. From the research I've already done, I thought 'Nuala inghean Seámus' would be correct. But I've been told it should be 'Nuala inghean Sheamuis' -- which is the most correct way to write this name. Also does anyone know which part of Ireland a person with this type of name would likely be from. Thank you for the help. This is a wonderful site & I hope to learn lots of Irish!

'Nuala inghean Sheamuis' means Nuala, James' daughter.
The answer to the second part of your question is "anywhere!"
This is not a surname, so it is difficult to place is with a particular clan or sept, and impossible to place in a location.
Also, you should be aware that Irish has changed somewhat in spelling and vocabulary since the 14th Century - (as has english).
