Last name origin & meaning:
Irish (Westmeath): reduced Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó
Saoraidhe ‘descendant of Saoraidhe’, a personal name
derived from saordha ‘noble’. It has been Anglicized
(‘translated’) as Freeman. Woulfe, however, believes the
original Gaelic form was Ó Síoghraidh, from a borrowing
of the Norse personal name Sigefrith.
