Assunto:  O'Hara's - What does the O' mean?
 
Mensagem:  As I recall, "O'Hara" merely means "son of Hara".  "MacDonald" (McDonald) has the same meaning:  son of Donald.  Eastern European languages have a similar meaning when they end with "...vich: and "...ski":  Ivanovich, Kocenski.  I think, however, that one means "son of" and the other "grandson of".
