The Cork surname Bouse (Bowse, Bowce) was sometimes recorded in U.S. or Canadian records as  Boyce.  When tracing O'Hearns, you will find that virtually all of them were recorded in Cork records as Ahern(e).  As for middle names, they were hardly ever used by ordinary Catholics in the early 19th century.  The Catholic gentry and prosperous merchant class did use them occasionally.
