Surname Dictionary

Clavin fairly rare: Midlands. Ir. Ó Claimhín. A somewhat derogatory name: clamh is a mangy creature, a leper. A sept of Laois-Offaly, the name is sometimes anglicised Swords, from confusion with the Irish word claidheamh, a sword. MIF.
Ó Claimhín Clavin: annamh: Lár na Tíre & rl. Le mí-aistriú aisteach eile tugadh Swords orthu i gConnacht. Ciallaíonn "clamh" galar craicinn nó lobhra - b'fhéidir go raibh fonn ar Mhuintir Chlaimhín bheith luaite le claidheamh!
