Hennigan

Origen: Irlandés. The Irish name Hennigan originally appeared in Gaelic as "O hEanain," but sometimes is an abbreviated form of the surname Henagahn. The Irish name Hennigan is derived from the native Gaelic O'hEineachain and O'hEanachain Septs that were located in County Mayo in the West of the country. It is in the Western Counties that the majority of descendants can still today be found. These Sept names were also anglicized as Heneghan and Henihan. The names Henehan, Henaghan and Henihan in Ireland are derived from the native Gaelic O'hEineachain Sept that was located in County Mayo in the West of the country. This Sept name was also occasionally anglicized to Bird by virtue of the fact that the Gaelic word for bird is 'ean'. It is in the Western Counties that the majority of Henehans can still be found.
