Swift Genealogy & History

Swift is an English and Irish name. It was originally derived from the Old English word swift(e), which�surprisingly enough�denoted someone who was a fast runner. Thus, it likely originated as a nickname given to people, often couriers, who were swift of foot. There is also a possible Irish origin in the Gaelic given name O'Fuada, meaning descendent of Fuada, which was derived from fuadach, meaning plundering. Swift family history is first recorded with one William Swift, who lived in Hampshire in 1167. Swift genealogy includes Patrick Swift, who was an important cultural figure in 20th-century London and Dublin, and Taylor Swift, an award-winning singer-songwriter.
