Firstly, it may a dialectal variant of "Cogan", which is of Welsh locational origin from a place called "Cotgan" in Llandaff near Cardiff. This place derived its name from the Welsh word for "bowl" or "depression". The name may also be the Anglicized form of the Gaelic name "MacCogadhain", composed of the Gaelic prefix "mac", son of and the Gaelic personal name "Cuchogaidh", meaning "Hound of War".
