Sugrue is an Irish surname. It is the reduced anglicized form of the Gaelic Ó Siochfhradha descendant of Siochfhradh, a personal name representing a Gaelicized form of an Old Norse cognate of Germanic Siegfried.

The surname is largely confined to County Kerry.[1]


Spelling variations[edit]

A cursory glance at US phone books will throw up the following variations:

  • Shugrue
  • Sughrue

both of which are closer phonetically to way Ó Siochfhradha is pronounced in the Irish language
