Clodagh - Wikipedia

Clodagh (/ˈkldə/ KLOH-də)[needs Irish IPA] is a female given name of Irish origin. [1] Lady Clodagh Anson, daughter of John Beresford, 5th Marquess of Waterford, was named after the River Clodagh, which flows through the Marquess's estate at Curraghmore at County Waterford.[2] Lady Clodagh married Claud Anson, son of Thomas Anson, 2nd Earl of Lichfield, and had a daughter who later wrote, "She called me Clodagh too and hoped, in vain, that we'd be the only two."[2] The name Clodagh is popular in Ireland but is little used elsewhere.
