The surname Victory comes from the original Irish Mac Anabadha, probably from "anabaidh" meaning premature. This surname has often been mistranslated as "victory," from the Irish "buaidh" and so Victory is a synonym of MacNaboe.

Victory Early Origins



The surname Victory was first found in the ancient principality of Breffny, where the sept was located, in what is now County Cavan (Irish: an Chabháin) in the Northeast of the province of Ulster in the present day Republic of Ireland.
