Origin of the Name Muckian

The origin of the name Muckian was found in the archives. Variants of the Irish name O'Muckian include Muckian, Muckeen, Muckeyin, McKean, McKeane, Muckeane and many others. This name is derived from the Gaelic O'Mochaidean sept that was principally located in County Monaghan in Ireland .
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. Consequently this name was very often changed to McKeane, given the similarity in the way the two names were pronounced. The original sept held a position of some authority in Cremorne in Monaghan during medieval times and it is in the north-eastern part of Ireland that the name and its variants are still mostly found.
The Muckian 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 Muckian descendants.
