Short Genealogy & History

Short genealogy is English. The name can have either an English or Gaelic origin. In either case, it originated as a descriptive surname referring to someone who was short of stature. The English origin is the Old English word "sceort" and Middle English "schort," both of which mean "short." The Gaelic origin is as an anglicization of the name Mac an Gheaire, Gheaire deriving from "giorr" or "short." There are written recordings of the name in Dorset as early as the late twelfth century and in Somerset in the thirteenth. Short family history includes famous Canadian comedian Martin Short.
