The names Kearney and Carney in Ireland are usually derived from the native Gaelic Mac Cearnaigh Sept, meaning 'victorious' and from the O'Catharnaigh Sept, which translates as 'warlike'. The town of Ballymacarney in County Meath still exists as the original homestead although the name can also be found in Ulster Province.

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.
