The surname Droddy is the anglicized version of the Irish surname "O Dreada." The surname has also been recorded in Galway where it is believed to be an anglicized form of the Connaught name O Draoda, a name usually anglicized as Drudy.

The surname Droddy was first found in County Cork (Irish: Corcaigh) the ancient Kingdom of Deis Muin (Desmond), located on the southwest coast of Ireland in the province of Munster, where the name was listed in 16th century Fiants, and later in wills dating back to 1629.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Vulneratus non victus
Motto Translation: Wounded not vanquished.
