Etymology of the name MEADHBH.
Meaning of the baby name MEADHBH.

  

MEADHBH.  Irish name meaning "merry." (Girls' Christian Names, Swan, 1905).

    Martha, Maud, and Mabel, are employed to distinguish Meadhbh, Meave, or Mab, one of the very oldest and most famous of Irish names.  It would be most satisfactory to take it from meadhail, joy; but this is far from certain, and it may come from an old comparative of mor, great.  But Mirth is analogous with the meaning of Ainè, the other fairy queen;... Meadhbh was the daughter of Eochaid Freidhleach, king of Erin, as it is said, A.M. 3922, and was so brilliant a heroine of Irish romance, that Congal Claen bids the men of Connaught, her husband's kingdom, to "Remember Meave in the battle." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
