SHERRY Family History

Is this name Scottish or Irish, or both? Nobody seems to be absolutely certain, partly because it is found in many spelling forms. What is certain is the origin is Gaelic, the derivation being (almost) certainly from 'searraigh' an ancient word which literally translates as 'a foal'. This may have been an endearment, or was possibly a nickname for a fast runner, as a secondary meaning is 'flying or flighty'. The varied spelling forms would take up a scroll on their own, but the usual examples are MacSharry, McSharry, O'Sharry, MacSherry, McSherry, MacShirie, MacShirrie and Sherry, but these are only for starters...
