Origin of the name DAIRTHECHTA.
Etymology of the name DAIRTHECHTA.
Meaning of the baby name DAIRTHECHTA.

  

DAIRTHECHTA.  A variant form of Irish Durthacht (q.v.), meaning "destruction, perdition."

    2 Durthacht, for which Dairthechta also occurs (see Windisch, s.v.), is probably of the same origin as the reduplicate doruthethaig, "deperdidit," Gram. Celt. p. 448 (incorrectly rendered celebravit at p. 351), and Stokes' Goidelica, pp. 4, 14; so that Mac Durthacht would seem to have had much the same meaning as the name of another character of the same class:  I mean Mac Cuill, "Son of Perdition or Destruction." (Lectures on the Origin and Growth of Religion as Illustrated by Celtic Heathendom, Rhys, 1888)
