    Name Meaning

    shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Fágáin or Ó Faodhagáin, dialect forms of Ó hÓgáin (see Hogan , Hagan ) and Ó hAodhagáin (see Hagan ). Irish lenited f (spelled fh) is soundless, and a number of words beginning with vowels have gained an initial f in some dialects; such seems to be the case here.

    occasionally an Anglicized form of Mac Phaidín (see McFadden ) or Ó Fiacháin (see Feehan ).
