MCMENAMIN Family History

This is an Irish surname of great antiquity and also great confusion. Recorded in a number of spellings including MacMenamin, McMenamin, MacManamon, McManamon, McMennuam, McMennum, and cross integrated with such English and Scottish surnames such as Merriman, Marmion and even the Irish O'Merry, much remains to be dscovered as to its true origins, even its translation being uncertain. There is a claim that it derives from the Gaelic "Mag giolla Mheidre", meaning "the son of the merryman", but this is disputed as being a translation of the English surname Merryman, also widely recorded and overlapping in Ireland, and therefore not a logical explanation...

Hi I am looking for my family geniological tree on my Fathers side. His name was Gerard Patrick McMenamin born 18-06- 1926 in Belfast Ireland and died in 1992 in Adelaide South Australia. His father was James McMenamin born 1874 and died 1960. His wife was--so far as I can tell some spelling of the name Sarah Agnes McAulley/Macauley? That is sadly all I have on him and would welcome any help to build up my tree.. p.s. The reason for my different surname was that my Father and I had a falling out and I changed it by deed poll in 1968. (it is now simply Paul Ross)
