Curtin / McCurtin

Orígen: Irlandés. Antes de ser traducido al inglés, Curtin apareció como "Mac Cuirtin," derivado del nombre personal "Cruitin," que significa "jorobado." Pues este nombre es descriptivo en origen, y se considera ser un apellido del apodo. Como la mayoría de apellidos hereditarios irlandeses, los apellidos del apodo fueron formados agregando el prefijo Mc, significando el "hijo de," u O, significando a "nieto de," a la raíz del nombre. Irish surnames have been much altered from their original forms. Before being translated into English, Curtin appeared as "Mac Cuirtin," derived from the personal name "Cruitin," which means "hunchbacked." As this name is descriptive in origin, it is considered to be a nickname surname. Like the majority of early Irish hereditary surnames, nickname surnames were formed by adding either the prefix Mc, meaning "son of," or O, meaning "grandson of," to the root of the name. First found in county Clare, where they were an ancient Thomond sept whose family seat was at Ennistymon.
