The name Freeman in Ireland is derived from the native Gaelic Mac an tSaoir Sept, taken from the word 'saor' meaning 'craftsman'. The names MacIntyre, Wright and MacAteer are also used as the anglicized version of this Gaelic Sept name. Freeman was also brought to the country by Anglo settlers and can still be found in all four Provinces.

A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
