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

  

MUIRE.  A Gaelic form of Mary (q.v.), meaning "bitter." (Praenomina, Charnock, 1882).

    At Kildare where the circular pyreum assuredly symbolised the central Fire, the servants of Bride were known indeterminately as either Maolbrighde or Maolmuire, i.e., servants of Brighde, or servants of Muire, and it is probable that Muire, the Gaelic form of Mary, was radically mother ire, the word ire being no doubt the same as ur, an Aryan radical meaning fire, whence arson, ardent, etc. (Archaic England, Bayley, 1920).
