Origin of the Name Hallinan

The Hallinan family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. The name Hallinan is derived from the native Gaelic O'hAilgheanain sept which translates as 'noble offspring'. This sept came from Munster .
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.
These families have always been confined to their original territory of Munster where the name was first recorded in the persons of Hugh and Henry O'Halinan who were acquitted of sheltering Robert Bettagh Russell who had killed several Englishmen, in the year 1313. The name appears frequently in the sixteenth century records, in the Elizabethan Fiants with references to Counties Waterford, Limerick and Kerry and in recent times the See of Limerick was occupied by the Rev. Denis Hallinan. In modern times the variant names Hanlon and Allen are often used instead of Hallinan.
The Hallinan 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 Hallinan descendants.
