Possibly from Proto-Celtic *makajā "plain (level country)". In Irish legend this was the name of a war goddess, sister of the Morrígan and the Badb. She was the legendary founder of Eṁain Ṁacha, seat of the Ulster king Conchobar mac Nessa, and her name survives in the Irish place name Armagh which was originally Ard Mhacha "Macha's height".
