According to one website I found

Quote:

FABRICE m
Usage: French
Pronounced: fa-BREES
French form of the Roman family name Fabricius, which was derived from Latin faber "craftsman".




I don't know of any Irish given name which means the same thing.

What about Mac an tSaoir (McAteer), son of the craftsman (saor)?

As a surname, sure. Never seen it used as a given name.
