The name Dodd in Ireland is
usually of Anglo origin having

settlers who arrived into County
Sligo in the sixteenth century.
In Ulster the native Gaelic O'Dubhda
Sept sometimes adopted Dodd as
the anglicized form of their name,
instead of the more usual Dowd.
A Sept is an ancient form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
