In Reply to: The Name Rial by Rial F. Coleman of 283

IRISH NAMES AND SURNAMES by Rev. Patrick Wolfe, Member of the Council,
National Academy of Ireland, published by Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore,
1969, has the following:
O Raghell, O Reile, O Ryle, O Reale, O Raile, O’Rahill, Rahill, Reihill, Ryle, Ryall, Rall,
Rail, Riall, Real, Reel, &c; a shortened form of O Raghallaigh, q.v.; sometimes also
pronounced O Raghaill, O Raighill, O Raoghaill, O Reighill, &c.
In other books I have seen “Riall” and “Rial” used interchangeably.
