The name Cochrane in Ireland is often of immigrant origin having been brought to Ulster by settlers from Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century. The native Gaelic O'Corcrain and Mac Corcrain Septs of Counties Fermanagh and Offaly sometimes adopted Cochrane as the anglicized form of their name, instead of the more usual Corcoran.

Origen: Escocés. The Scottish Cochrane family took their name from the lands of this name in the parish of Paisley, near Glasgow. The place name is of uncertain derivation, perhaps stemming from the Welsh word "coch," meaning "red." First found in Renfrewshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Rinn Friù), a historic county of Scotland, today encompassing the Council Areas of Renfrew, East Renfrewshire, and Iverclyde, in the Strathclyde region of southwestern Scotland, where they were seated from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
