Casey Name History

Casey Irish Coat of arms


Casey is a common variation of the Gaelic Cathasaigh (also O Cathasaigh), and means vigilant or watchful. At least six different septs used this name, primarily in the Irish counties of Cork and Dublin, but also found in Fermanagh, Mayo, Limerick, and Roscommon. These days, Caseys can be found across Ireland, especially in the counties of Munster and Connacht.

Variant spellings of the Irish surname Casey include McCasey, O'Casey, and others.
