O'Keefe Genealogy & History

O'Keefe is an Irish patronymic surname, from the Gaelic surname with the same spelling, which means the son of Caomh, a nickname meaning noble or gentle. The clan was centered in County Cork originally but was driven west by the Normans in their invasion in the late twelfth century. O'Keefe family history starts with Father Eoghan O'Keeffe, who was president of the bards of Ireland and noted as such in the records of North Cork in 1680. O'Keefe genealogy includes several well-known people, like former NASA Administrator and Louisiana State University chancellor Sean O'Keefe, actor and model Jonathan Rhys Meyers (born O'Keeffe), and prominent American painter Georgia O'Keeffe.
