I guess that was supposed to mean "May she rest in peace" which I know as "Ar deis Dé go raibh a hanam" - May her soul be on the right side of God. What you got there doesn't speak of her soul but of his name and I don't know what usuail is.
Please correct any of my mistakes. Without mercy.

So you know, in case you want to use it for anything in the future, the correct spelling and punctuation is Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam uasal

I'm sorry for your loss.

To Clarify...a anam is his soul
a h-anam..... is her soul
a h-ainm uasail is ...her noble name
What you need is.............Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam uasail

I've never seen the "h" hyphenated in "a hanam" (?) Anyway, this was for the poster's mum, so "her soul" is what was meant.

"Ainm" does mean "name," but it doesn't make sense in context. I'm guessing, as others have, that "anam" was what was meant, since it's a standard condolence message.

Why the genitive form of "uasal"?

No, hanam shouldnt be hyphenated
uasail was taken from posters text..should be uasal
Word Mum was missed entirely .What I gave supposed it was Dad.
All In all a P-poor clarification.
