Origin of the Name Brogan



The Brogan family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives.
Over the centuries Surnames developed a wide number of variants. Different spellings of the same name can be traced back to an original root. Additionally when a bearer of a name emigrated it was not uncommon that their original name would be incorrectly transcribed in the record books at their new location. Surnames were also often altered over the years based on how they sounded phonetically and depending on the prevailing political conditions it may have been advantageous to change a name from one language to another.
Variants of the name Brogan include Broggan, O'Brohan and Brohan. The Gaelic sept of O'Brogain were of the Hy Fiachrach and possessed vast estates in the barony of Carra and also at Breaghwy, in County Mayo, where, with County Donegal, the name is often found today.
A sept or clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory. Irish septs and clans that are related often belong to even larger groups, sometimes called tribes.
A notable bearer of the name was Benedict O'Brocain who was Bishop of Leyney from 1286 to 1312. The placename Ballybrogan was named after the sept in County Roscommon, near Athlone. The 1659 Census indicates that the O'Brogans were chiefly located in County Westmeath at that time.
The Brogan coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Brogan descendants.
