Hoggan Family HistoryRecorded as O' Hogan, Hogan, Hoggan, and possibly others, this is a famous Irish surname. It derives from the Old Gaelic name O' hOgain, meaning the male descendant of "Ogan", a nickname which literally translates as "young man". Traditionally, Irish family names were taken from the heads of tribes, revered elders, or from some illustrious warrior, and are usually prefixed by O', as above, or Mac, denoting "son of". The original namebearer, Ogan, was himself descended from the uncle of Brian Boru, High King of Ireland (1002 - 1014).
