  1. Saint Fiacre

    Saint Fiacre is the name of three different Irish saints, the best-known being Saint Fiacre of Breuil, who built a hospice for travellers in what is now Saint-Fiacre, Seine-et-Marne in France. Fiachra is an ancient pre-Christian name from Ireland. The meaning has been confused by various mis-translations, referring it to meaning "battle king", or it maybe being a derivative of the word fiach "raven". but the name actually means hunter/tracker or something that hunts/tracks things down. Some have been known to refer to Fiachra as even meaning "predator". The name can be found in ancient Irish folklore and stories such as the Children of Lir.
