  1. My name is Fergus. The name Ferdia is the Irish name for my home town. which is called Ardee in English as from the history story, that is where Ferdia fought and lost his life. On the bridge in Ardee Co. Louth. Which the bridge still stands and has cars driving across it every day. This is a link to the history if anyone is interested. https://www.ballapoustans.ie/ardee.html

  2. Just looking at this now. Fergus has a great history behind it. But its a bit too similar to fungus for my liking. However iif you like the “Fer” sound, an interesting alternative is Ferdia, also an ancient Irish name, that is quite rare, even in Ireland these days.
