|The name Naughton|
Naughton, Naghten, Nocton, and Norton are derived from Neachtain, a personal name.
Edward MacLysaght in The Surnames of Ireland, sixth Edition, says
"Naughton O Neachtain. (Neachtain, a well-known personal name, may derive from the word meaning bright or pure) There are two septs of this name in the west. There are several variants including Nocton, Knochton, and Natton and the English name Norton is also used.
The Name Penelope
Penelope is listed as the Anglicized version of the Irish Finola, Finnguala, Fionnghuala, Fionnuala, pronounced (f'un-ual-a), meaning "fair shouldered". Donnchadh O'Corrain in Irish Names says that the name was "extremely popular in Ireland in the later middle ages especially among the O Connors of Connacht, the O Briens, the Mac Dermotts and other families". He says that Finnguala has not been popular since the 1700s, but that the form Nuala is still popular.
Both Penelope Nuaghton byrne and her daughter Penelope Byrne Langan were called Nappy.
