Name does not exist in any census
« on: Thursday 30 July 20 11:39 BST (UK) »
Please could you decipher this name as what it looks like does not appear in any Irish census (its from a Irish marriage cert) I can clearly make out Bridget but the second name is not searchable.

It looks like Gonigy

Could it be McGonigy?

Add - what is the date of the marriage cert?

Its from Mountbellew 1921 Galway, the nearest I could get to it on Ancestry was Going but surely it would not be that?

A silly question ;D

Have you checked the Ireland 1911 census, and the 1901 census?
These are not available on Ancestry.
