Fogherty Spelling Variations



During the Middle Ages, a standardized literary language known by the general population of Ireland was a thing of fiction. When a person's name was recorded by one of the few literate scribes, it was up that particular scribe to decide how to spell an individual's name. So a person could have several spelling variations of his name recorded during a single lifetime. Research into the name Fogherty revealed many variations, including Fogarty, O'Fogarty, Foggarty, Fogherty, Foguety, Foggerty, Fogerty and many more.
