Re: Origin of Surname

Hello,
if your family has moved from ireland to a french speaking area, i.e. Canada, it is possible that the original Irish name has been ''francisized'', as many Irish catholics have done after coming to french canada in the 1600's

For instance, my surname is Lahaie, and I believed my whole life it was french in origin, until I learned my familly name used to spell Lahe (Lahey) and that the familly came from Ireland.

Keep looking both ways.
