Origin of the Name Cullen

The origin of the name Cullen was found in the archives. Variants of Cullen include Cullin. Meaning 'handsome one', this Irish sept originated in the South-Eastern Counties of Ireland . They possessed territory at Glencullen, County Wicklow, a place name from Cuileanne meaning 'Holly Tree', and also at Kilcullen in that same County. At that time they were a great power in that part of the land and have continued to dwell there uninterrupted to the present day. Several other septs have become Cullen also, namely, Culhoun of Leinster and MacCullen of Leitrim. Patrick O'Cullen was Bishop of Clougher, 1517-1542, and Paul Cullen was the renowned Archbishop of Dublin, 1803-1878.
The Cullen 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 Cullen descendants.
