(CAECILIUS) (SHAY) (SéAGHDHA)

SHAY (שַׁי)
MEANING:
The origin of this name is still today quite uncertain. The theories include: 1) From the name “Shyla”, an anglicized form of the Irish name “Síle” plus the popular suffix “leen / lyn / lene”.This name derives from the Ancient Greek element “aokkos (άοκκος)”, via Latin “caecus > caecilius”, meaning “blind, without eyes”, composed of two elements: “a-“ (prefix)”, meaning “without” plus “-okkos”, meaning “eye”. 2) From the Hebrew name “Shay” plus the popular suffix “leen / lyn / lene”. The name “shay”, means “gift, present, gift offered as homage”. 3) From the Irish name “Shay” plus the popular suffix “leen / lyn / lene”. This is an Irish Gaelic name, anglicized form of “Séaghdha”, meaning “stately, majestic, courteous; also learned, scientific, ingenious or hawk-like”, although Séaghdha is exclusively male. Séaghdha derives from the surname “Ó Séaghdha“, the name of a family of Corca Dhuibhne in West Kerry who until about the period of the Anglo-Norman invasion were lords of Ui Rathach, now the barony of Iveragh.
