Origin of the Name Mollohan

The ancient history of the name Mollohan was found in the archives. The Irish name Mollohan is derived from a number of distinct Gaelic septs.
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.
When Gaelic names were anglicized during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries they were often changed to Anglo equivalents that sounded most like their original Gaelic name. The O'Mothlachain sept that was located in Counties Leitrim and Longford anglicized their name as Mollohan as well as Molan. The O'Maolachain sept anglicized their name as Mallaghan as well as Mollohan. These Gaelic names have also been changed to Mulligan. In modern times the name Mollohan and its variants Molohan and Molahan are mostly found in the midlands region.
The Mollohan 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 Mollohan descendants.
