MCGRANN Family History

This interesting surname of Scottish and Irish origin is derived from the Gaelic "mac Raighne" meaning "son of Raighne" which is a pet form of the personal name Raghuall, itself equating with the Germanic given name Reginald composed of the elements "Ragin" meaning "counsel" plus "wald" "rule". The surname is found mainly in Counties Tyrone and Armagh. The earliest recording dates back to the mid 15th Century (see below). Variations in the idiom of the spelling include McGrane, McGrain, Mac Raing, etc..
