Family Shields & Irish Coat of Arms


8 items

The art of heraldry can be traced back to the twelfth century. An individual family coat of arms and a crest was created for knights so that they could be identified in battle despite their heavy armor. Each coat of arms must be unique and have specific meaning according to the rules of family heraldry, so no two Irish surnames will bear the same designs.

We are proud to showcase the work of House of Names, who have been creating exquisite heraldic products since 1965. Through their vast library, researchers trace 96% of all known names requested, including those of Irish, British and European origin. Their beautiful plaques bearing the Irish crest, coat of arms, and motto if applicable are perfect if you want to proudly display the unique emblems of your family name. You can also purchase a double plaque, displaying two heraldic shields, as a touching wedding gift.
