This interesting surname is of Irish origin, and is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic "Mac Ualghairg", composed of the elements "mac", son of, with the personal name "Ualgharg", apparently of Old Celtic elements meaning "proud" and "fierce". Golden and Goldrick are recorded as synonymous around Carrick-on-Shannon and Boyle. M(a)c Goldrick is numerous in Co. Fermanagh, where it is recorded in the Hearth Money Rolls of 1665 - 1666. The form McGoldrick was also widely used in Co. Mayo (where Golden has now largely superseded it), at least up to the end of the 18th Century, as records of householders and the like attest; it also occurs several times in the ecclesiastical records of Raphoe.
