Clodagh (// KLOH-də)[needs Irish IPA] is a female given name of Irish origin.  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. 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." The name Clodagh is popular in Ireland but is little used elsewhere.
