Origin of the Name Curran

The origin of the name Curran was found in the archives. Meaning 'champion' or 'hero', this Irish surname originated in County Waterford, gradually spreading to Kildare, Kerry and Leitrim. One sept was of the Ui Maine, called O'Currain, one of whom was Simon O'Currin, Bishop of Kilfenora, 1302. Of the South Leinster sept was Andrew O'Curran, who was appointed Prior of Glascarrig in 1411 by the Pope. The Leitrim Currans were a Bardic family. An outstanding person of the name was John Philpot Curran, 1750-1817, orator and patriot. He was born in County Cork. His daughter was Sarah Curran, 1781-1808, who was a romantic and tragic figure who was engaged to be married to the famous revolutionary, Robert Emmet.
The Curran 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 Curran descendants.
