Cuff / Cuffe

The names Acuffe and Cuffe in Ireland were brought to the country by settlers who prospered in County Kilkenny. These names are also derived from the native Gaelic Mac Dhuibh and O'Duirnin Septs of Ulster Province who more usually anglicized their names as MacDuff and Durnin.

Origen: Irlandés. Los nombres Acuffe y Cuffe en Irlanda fueron traídos al país por colonizadores que prosperaron en el Condado Kilkenny. Estos nombres son derivados también del linaje gaélico Mac Dhuibh y O'Duirnin de la Provincia de Ulster que más anglificó generalmente sus nombres como MacDuff y Durnin. The Cuff surname comes from the Middle English word "cuffe," which meant "glove." It is thought that the name was originally an occupational name for a maker or seller of gloves. Although most instances of the name in Ireland were through migration from England, there were native Irish bearers of Cuff from the Gaelic form of O Duirnin. Although this name is usually Anglicized as Durnin, it had occasionally become Cuffe through mistranslation, since the gaelic word "dorn" refers to "a fist". First found in Kilkenny where they were seated from very ancient times.

Variantes: Acuffe, Cuff, Cuffe, Acuffe, Couffe, Couff, Cuffy, Cuffey, Cuffie y otros.
