Guinan / Ginnan

Origen: Irlandés, Escocés. El apellido Guinan proviene del nombre Irlandés O Cuanain. The ancient Scottish name Guinan is carried by the descendents of the Pictish people. It was a name for a personal name Conan, which means little hound. The name could also be a local name from the land of Conan in Kincardinshire. In this situation, the name would have been a topographic or local surname, which was given to a family who held a barony or lands, had houses, manors or estates in that area. First found in Kincardineshire, 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: Guinan, Conan, Coonan, Coonane, O'Conan, O'Cunane, Conane, Conad, Connan, Connant, Conant y otros.
