pn In the formation of sept-names the plural of úa is found folld. by the gen. of the eponym, e.g. Ui Néill, Ui Fidgente. Accord. to Professor Mac Neill these belong to a later fashion of nomenclature than collective-names (see McNeill Pop.-Groups p. 82 seq.). `In the genealogies, but not in general usage, there is a partial revival of sept-names in Ui, probably in the eleventh century, perhaps due to professional familiarity with the early nomenclature.' The eponym can be feminine. e.g. Ui Bairrche, Ui Brigte. Professor MacNeill knows no instance of a sept-name derived from a female ancestor within the documentary period. He thinks that the feminine sept-eponyms had a religious, not a genealogical, import. The follg. exx. are illustrative merely: n p. U Barrche (Oe Barche, v.l.), Thes. ii 307.4 (Fiacc's Hymn).
