HARTIN Family History

Recorded in several spellings including O'Hartigan, O'Hartagan, Hartegan, Hartigan, and Hartin, and being cognate with the surname O'Hart, this is a famous Irish surname. It originates from the pre 15th century Olde Gaelic surname O'hArtagain, which means the descendant of the son of Art, the latter being possibly a short form of Arthur. It is said that the tribe were Dalcassian, and originated from the region known as Thomond, which was made up of the modern counties of Clare, Limerick and Tipperary.

Colm Hartin

From previous online researches of my surname, I found the name meaning along with as described on this site, means "A hero" or perhaps "descendant of a hero". Further to my amazement, the surname has populated in the United States; there are more Hartin(s) in the U.S than in Ireland. In the present time and from my experiences, the surname has popularity in Gowna, Co. Cavan. My grandfather originated from the Gowna, Co.Cavan, but later in life, moved to Killeshandra, Co. Cavan.
