Origin of the Name Finegan

The origin of the name Finegan was found in the archives. Variants of Finegan include O'Finnegan, Finnegan and Finnigan. There were two distinct septs of Finnegan whose name in Irish is O'Fionnadain meaning 'fair-headed'. One of these septs was located on the border of counties Galway and Roscommon where there are two places called Ballyfinnegan, one in the barony of Ballymoe and the other in the barony of Castlereagh. The other is a Breffney sept. The present day bearers of the name hail chiefly from the localities of their origin, the majority belonging to Cavan and adjacent counties. The Elizabethan Fiants suggest that in mediaeval times Finnegans were also located in county Wicklow.
The Finegan 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 Finegan descendants.
