Gilmore / Gilmour

The name Gilmore in Ireland is derived from either of two Gaelic Septs, Mac Giolla Mhuire or Mac Giolla Mhir. The name is commonest in Ulster and in County Sligo, where the Septs were based and it is here that the majority of descendants can still be found.

Origen: Escocés. A Strathclyde-Briton family from the Scottish/English Borderlands was the first to use the surname Gilmore. It is a name for a devotee of the Virgin Mary. Looking back further, we find the name Gilmore was originally derived from the Gaelic Gille Moire, which means follower of Mary. First found in Ayrshire, where they were seated from very ancient times. Early records from Cumberland show that between 1133 and 1156, Gilmor, son of Gilander founded the chapelry of Treverman (later Trierman) in the parish of Walton, Cumberland, site of Triermain castle. Gilmore meaning "Gill the Big" was son of Gillanders the great Chief who lived about 1140.

Variantes: Gilmour, Gilmore, Gilmur, Gilmor, Gilmer y otros.

Motto Translated: It will be given to the persevering.
