O'Coogan / Coogan / Cogan / O´Cogan / Coggin / Gogan / Goggan

The name Coogan, Cogan, O´Cogan or O´Coogan in Ireland is derived from the native Gaelic Mac Cuachain Sept that was located in County Leitrim and from the Mac Cumhaighe Sept of County Armagh. These Sept names were also anglicized as MacGoohan and MacCoohan.

Origen: Galés. Celtic in origin, the name Coogan came from the rugged landscape of Wales. The name's origins go back to a time when the Coogan family lived in the parish of Cogan, which is in the diocese of Llandaff in the county of Glamorgan. The surname Coogan belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. First found in Glamorganshire (Welsh: Sir Forgannwg), a region of South Wales, anciently part of the Welsh kingdom of Glywysing, 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.

Variantes: Cogan, Cogen, Coogan, Coogen, Coogin, Coggan, Coggen, Coggin, Coggins, Gogan, Goggin y otros.

Motto: Constant to honor.
