Origin of the Name Naughton

The ancient history of the name Naughton was found in the archives. The name Naughton is derived from the native Gaelic O'Neachtain sept and is distinct from MacNaughton which is of Scottish immigrant origin and which is today mostly found in the Northern counties. The name Naughton has a number of variants including Naghten, Natton and MacNaught. The Gaelic word that gives these names is 'Neachtain' which translates as 'bright' or 'pure' and which was originally a Gaelic first name. This sept was located in the Western counties of Connaught Province, in Clare and Roscommon especially, where these names can still be mostly found today. Other variants include Nocton and even Norton.
The Naughton 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 Naughton descendants.
