DEGAN Family History

Recorded in many forms as shown below, this is an Irish surname. It is a development of the Old Gaelic name O' Duibhginn, or literally a male descendant of Dubhceann, this being a personal byname meaning dark headed one. Traditionally Irish family names are taken from the heads of tribes, and were originally prefixed either by Mac or Mc denoting "son of", or O', male descendant of. The O' Duibhginn sept belonged to the barony of Clandonagh in the Leinster county of Laois, and the most notable family of the name, that of Kyle parish in West Laois, were keepers of the Bell of St.
