Origin of the Name Davoren

The origin of the name Davoren was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. The Irish name Davoren is derived from the Gaelic O'Dabhoireann sept that was located in County Clare. This name literally translates as 'black burren', the Burren being the famous limestone landscape in County Clare.
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.
The ancient manuscript 'The Four Masters' records the death in the year 1364 of Gillananaev O'Duibhdabhoireann, Chief Brehon of Coromroe, which shows the origin Gaelic rendering of the name. the name was originally anglicized as O'Duvdavoren but later shortened to O'Davoren. The 'Wars of Torlough' mention a Coradh Mic Dabhoirenn in 1317. The O'Davorens originally had a mortuary chapel in the now vanished church of Noughaval in north County Clare.
The Davoren 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 Davoren descendants.
