    Notes 
    • Latin Names in English


      Parish records were either written in English or Latin. Never in Irish. The surname ALWAYS retains the English spelling (or a phonetic variation ? the same surname can be spelled differently in any set of records, probably depending on the way that the person writing it spelled the name, and whether that person was a local to the area or not.) The rules of Latin are not necessarily followed, the spelling of the name changes and does not become what it should become. That is to say, Latin has rules and with those rules the basic name will change indicating a parent or a child. The child?s name will be given in it?s basic form ? that is the nominative form, but the end of the parents name will change somewhat (the genative form). Putting this as simply as possible, the child may be called after one of the parents, but the spelling of each name while it looks almost the same will end differently.

      How each ending changed, depended on the nominative ? the plain form of the name ? and there were rules to be followed. These rules changed when it was a marriage.

      However, the rules of the language were not always followed and the endings of names can be different even when it is the same person filling in the register and this causes so much confusion amongst researchers.

      The root of the name is what is important ? that is, how the beginning of the name is spelled ? how similar it is to that of the child ? so long as that is similar, then you can take it that the child and one of the parents had the same name.

      Sometimes, the translation can throw us off track ? for example, Johanna meaning Jane, Jean, Johanna and also being translated as *Honora*

      The fact that the in Latin ?J? was written ?I?. Regardless of grammatical changes in names, little things such as Ioannes and Johannes being John are not too easily seen.

      Some Changes in Names seen in Irish Parish Registers

      In Latin, the spelling of a name will change depending on whether it is simply the name itself, or whether it is the name of a parent or a bride. If you have two names in a register which to your mind should be spelled exactly the same way and they are not ? then this is because the rules of Latin and the way that names should be spelled tell us whether it is the child or parent who is being named.

      The name changes to indicate ?son/daughter of, bride of.? The first name is spelled as it should be and the way the parents first name ends

      James son of James should read : ?Jacobus filius Jacobi.?

      This combination of endings is constant for any male name that ends in ?us? eg. Anthonius, Bartolomaeus, Cornelius, Carolus, Edwardus, Franciscus, Gulielmus, Henricus, Josephus, Patricius, Petrus, Stephanus, Timotheus.

      Any name ending in ?us? used as the father?s name should end in ?i?

      e.g Anthonius, filius Edwardi; (Anthony son of Edward)
      Petrus, filius Stephani; (Peter son of Stephen)
      Josephus, filius Patricii. Joseph son of Patrick

      John son of John becomes Johannes, filius Johannis

      Any name ending in ?es? or ?is? in the nominative case e.g Johannes, Danielis, Micaelis takes the ?is? or can remain the same
      Danielis filius Micaelis : Daniel son of Michael
      Danielis filius Johannis : Daniel son of John
      Johannes filius Danielis : John son of Daniel

      Names ending in ?o? add ?nis? to the father or the mother
      Hugo filius Hugonis : Hugh, son of Hugh

      Names ending in ?a? should end in ?ae? when it is the father or mother who is mentioned in the records ? in most cases with Irish records the ?e? is absent when it comes to Mariae
      e.g. Maria, filia Mariae : Mary, daughter of Mary
      This group includes:
      Anna, Brigitta, Caecilia, Catherina, Elena, Elinora, Hanoria, Honoria, Johanna, Rosa.
      e.g.
      Brigitta, filia Annae : Bridget daughter of Anne
      Honoria, filia Johannae: Honoria daughter of Joan (see name list above Honora = Joan)
      Catherina, filia Elenae : Catherine daughter of Helen.

      Helen is a name that is rarely seen in parish records that are written in English up to the late 19th century. This name is usually found as Ellen in Irish parish records that are written in Latin

      Winifred should belong to this group and just becomes Winifreda

      Marriage can be slightly different: if the name ends in ?a? the ending becomes ?am?
      e.g
      Johannes nupsit Annam : John married Anne
      Jacobus nupsit Brigittam : Jacob (James) married Bridget

      5) names ending in ?ix? should become ?icis? in the genitive: Beatrix filia Beatricis

      6) there are a few odd ones, namely Thomas, Jeremias, Barnabas, Adamus, which
      don?t fit the rules and can be found in different forms
      e.g Thoma filius Thomae : Thomas son of Thomas
      Thomas filius Thome : Thomas son of Thomas
      Adamus, filius Ade or Adam : Adam son of Adam

      The name Bridget usually follows the same form in baptismal records as it should in marriage records, i.e. Bridget is often written as Bridgetam in baptismal records whereas it should read Bridgeta
