O'Dea, pronounced "oh-dee" (IPA: /oːˈdiː/), is an Irish surname approximately 1,000 years old belonging to a family descended from a tenth century chieftain called Deághaidh. The clan came originally from the western coastal county of Clare. The English version of the name, O'Dea, is derived from Ó Deághaidh or Ua Deághaidh in the Irish language.
