The name Caulfield is one about which much confusion arises. A name of
several origins, few patronymics have acquired so many anglicized versions,
the more common being MacCaul and MacCawell. Other variations include MacCall,
MacHall, MacCarvill, MacCowhill, Callwell, Howell, Campbell and Gaffney.
In parts of Galway and Mayo Caulfield has been used as the anglicized form
of O'Gamhnain and O'Gamhna (from the Irish for calf).
