The word is an anglicized form of an Irish term 'O Proinntigh' and the meaning that you can figure out from it is the 'descendent of Proinnteach'. The word Proinnteach is of Gaelic origin and it is used for the person who bestows something to somebody.

The word is considered as a masculine one but it is seldom being used as a name and almost always you will find that it is used as a surname of a person. It is one of the most famous surnames in England and it is attributed to some of the most famous novelists of the nineteenth century. They were known to the world as Bronte sisters and their first names were Charlotte, Emily and Anne.
