Bye Bye, Bridget – Irish Names Dropped to Minimize Prejudice

A recent study found that the Irish Catholic names Bridget and Patrick were used much less often among second-generation Irish than among first-generation Irish in late 19th-century England and Wales.

English Protestant names like George and William, on the other hand, were used much more often by these second-generation Irish.


Researchers Malcolm Smith and Donald MacRaild believe that, during this “Irish Need Not Apply” era, English names were adopted as a way to minimize discrimination. They say the same trend can be seen today among other immigrant communities, such as the Turks in Germany and the Indians in Australia.
