    Post My New Avatar

    Many of you may have already noticed my new avatar. It is the coat of arms for my pre-Anglicized surname. Apparently, the coat of arms was traced to Vaucluse, France, which is very near to where France, Switzerland, and Germany meet.

    I hope you enjoy looking at this new image. Indeed, my old avatar was in place for quite a long time.

    i have an excellent coat of arms,ill have to find an online pic and throw it up someday. my surname means ''king'' or ''leader'' etc and the motto, if you will, that goes along with it is ''He who would rather die than be disgraced'' which describes my family very well!

    ''The Ryans are likely among the longest settled families in the Tipperary region and for their origins we have to delve back to a time before history, when there were great but dimly perceived movements of tribal groups across Ireland.

    From the available evidence, it appears that the Ryans are descended from ancient Leinster dynasties which for a time expanded into Munster, only to be pushed back but leaving behind them the seeds of these families.

    With regard to the Ryans or as they were more properly called, the O’Mulryans, they were particularly strong in the territory of Owney (around Newport), and in the Civil Survey of 1654, over eighty heads of families are named for that territory. They were also plentiful in the neighbouring folklore, the best known member of this family was the outlaw known as ‘Ned of the Hill’, a victim of the downturn in Gaelic fortunes after the Treaty of Limerick in 1691.

    Long lonely I go Under frost, under snow, Hunted through hill and through hollow. '' - By Denis G. Marnane

    :yipee Excellent idea, VB. Yes, it was probably time for a change, and your new avatar looks good. Not only good, but personally significant for you, too.

    How many of you other people have family coat of arms pictures?

    Sorry folks, my last name will remain privately hidden. But I will give you a teaser, my surname orginates from the Galicia region of Spain.

    Post my mother's side of the family

    my mother's side of the family were great soldiers and leaders, all the men were in the IRA or the IRB in their time and proud,true patriots
    the gaeilge of the surname is more accurate for us really

    ''Ó Faoláin is the name of an important Irish sept prominent in the southeast of the country. The name is derived from the gaelic word "faol" meaning a wolf, "faoláin" being a diminutive form (little wolf). The original Faoláin from whom the surname is derived, was nineteenth in descent from Fiacha Suidhe, a younger brother of Conn of the Hundred Battles, who reigned as High King for thirty five years until his death in A.D. 157. This makes the O Faoláin sept of the same origin as Commisky and Ó Bric. It is said that the Irish names Ó Faoileáin and Ó hAoileáin (Hyland) are simple variant forms of the same name that arose as members of the sept spread beyond the original territory.''
