Redmond Origin and Meaning

The name Redmond is a boy's name of Irish origin meaning "wise protector".

We love this partly for purely personal reasons, since it is one of our surnames. We used it as the middle name of a son -- and it can make a good first choice too.

Redmond--aka Reamann or Raemonn--is the Irish form of the Germanic name that occurs in modern English as Raymond. The 12th century Norman invader Raymond Fitzgerald aka Raymond Le Gros (meaning, The Large or The Fat), brought the name to Ireland, where it morphed into Redmond along with other variations. One seventeenth century Redmond O'Hanlon was a charismatic outlaw, and he has a modern namesake who is a well-known travel writer.

In Ireland, Mundy is sometimes used as a nickname.
