Name Root:
(CAECILIUS) (shay) (séaghdha)
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 Proto-Italic and Proto-Indo-European Adjective “*káykos/*kaikos,” via Latin “caecus > Caecilius,” meaning “blind, without eyes.” 2) From the Hebrew name “Shay” plus the popular suffix “leen/lyn/lene.” The name “shay,” meaning “gift, present, a gift offered as an homage.” 3) From the Irish name “Shay” plus the popular suffix “leen/lyn/lene.” It is an Irish Gaelic name, an 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.
