Origen: Irlandés, Escocés. The rugged western mountains of Scotland's coastline and the Hebrides islands were home to the ancestors of the Shannon family. Shannon was originally a name for a person noted as possessing great wisdom, or an elderly person. The surname is derived from the Irish Gaelic name O Seanain, which comes from the word sean, which has the double meaning of old and wise. First found in Kintyre, where they were seated from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Scotland to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects. The Irish name Shanahan is derived from the native Gaelic O'Seanachain Sept that was located in the West of the country and in County Clare especially. This name is now widespread throughout the Province of Munster where the name Shannon can also be found as a variant.

Variantes: Shannon, Shennan, Shennane y otros.

Motto Translated: With virtue for guide.
