FARRAH.  Irish name, possibly meaning "fights like a man," from a war-cry.  See note below.

... The bards attended battle-fields and raised the rosg-catha or war-song.  The Irish rushed into battle with fierce shouts of defiance, and loud battle-cries; their chief cry, according to Ware, was "Farrah, Farrah," which, according to some, means to fight valiantly, or like a man; and according to others, it is the same as the word "Fairé, Fairé," which signifies to watch, watch, or be on your guard; and the word "Hurrah" is supposed to have come from the same source. (Irish Pedigrees, O'Hart, 1892)
