MCCALLION Family History

Recorded as MacCallan, MacCallion, McCallan, MacCallion, McCallion, Callan and Callion, this is an Irish surname. it originates from the pre 10th century Gaelic O'Cathgalain, with the prefix O' indicating a male descendant of, plus the personal name Cathgalain, itself a compond of the elements "cath", meaning a battle, and "gal", brave and the diminutive suffix "an", to give "Little brave-battle" or similar. Almost all Irish patronymic surnames derives from the feats of valour of the first chief of the clan or sept, and this would seem to be a good example. There were three distinct septs or branches of the "family" in Ireland...
