MCKEIGHEN Family HistoryRecorded in many forms including McKeighan, McKeighen, McKeighan, as well as McCaghan, McCaughan, Mc Coughan, and possibly related to O'Keegan, McKeegan, and Keegan, this surname in the spellings above is from Ulster, Northern Ireland. It certainly lives up to the old Irish joke 'Its not what it looks like, - its what it sounds like that matters'. The research suggests that it originates as does Egan, Keegan and Hegan from the ancient 13th century MacAodhagain. This translates as 'The son of Hugh'.
