The name Condon in Ireland is of Norman origin having been brought to the country in the twelfth century. The name in its original form was de Caunteton, and in Gaelic, Condun. The Sept was located in County Cork where the majority of descendants can still be found.

Origen: Irlandés. Cuándo los Anglo-Normandos comenzaron a asentarse en Irlanda, ellos trajeron la tradición de apellidos locales a una isla que ya tuvo un gaélico que denominaba el sistema de apellidos hereditarios establecidos. Los apellidos locales, tal como Condon, fue formado de los nombres de un lugar o una señal geográfica donde una persona vivió, la tierra tuvo, o nació. Los apellidos Anglo-normandos más tempranos de este tipo vinieron de Normandía, pero cuando los Normandos se trasladavan, ellos crearon los nombres que se refirieron a donde ellos residieron realmente. Originalmente, estos topónimos fueron prefixed por "de," que significa "from ó preveniente de" en francés. Es pensado que esta familia derivó su nombre de cuando un antepasado vivió en el arreglo de Caunton en el condado inglés de Nottinghamshire. La forma gaélica del apellido Condon es Condún. When the Anglo- Normans began to settle in Ireland, they brought the tradition of local surnames to an island which already had a Gaelic naming system of hereditary surnames established. Local surnames, such as Condon, were formed from the names of a place or a geographical landmark where a person lived, held land, or was born. The earliest Anglo-Norman surnames of this type came from Normandy, but as the Normans moved, they created names that referred to where they actually resided. Originally, these place names were prefixed by "de," which means "from" in French. It is thought that this family derived its name from when an ancestor lived in the settlement of Caunton in the English county of Nottinghamshire. The Gaelic form of the surname Condon is Condún. First found in county Cork where this ancient Norman family were granted lands by Strongbow for their assistance in the invasion of Ireland in 1172.
