Origin of the Name McGeough

The origin of the name McGeough was found in the archives. Variants of McGeough include McGeogh, McGoff and Geoghegan. Meaning 'red haired person', this was the nickname for a person of red hair. This name is of Celtic origin and is popular throughout England , Ireland , Scotland and Wales. It is found in many mediaeval manuscripts in the above islands. Examples of such are a Robert Gogh, who was recorded in the ancient book 'Kirby's Quest'. The surname is common in East Anglia, were it was originally of Breton origin, introduced by followers of William the Conqueror. In Ireland two native Gaelic Septs have been anglicized Gough, they being O'Cuachain of the Hy Fiachrach located in County Mayo in Connaught Province and the other being Mag Eothach which is a branch of the McKeoghs. The variants McGeogh and McGoff are also taken from the McKeogh Sept, and are principally found in Counties Armagh, Monaghan and Louth. The Mac Eochadha Sept of Oriel also anglicized their native name to McGeough.
The McGeough 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 McGeough descendants.
