Sheridan is an Anglicized form of the Old Gaelic name O Sirideain. Blah blah blah The truth is that the Sheridan name is alot more ancient than usually thought. I believe that SheriDAN is derived from the ancient people the Tuatha De Dannan, who were one of the first settlers to colonise Ireland arriving on the shores of Connemara after the Formonians and Firbolgs tribes in about 1897BC - 1477BC For more info on the truth about our Sheridan name through history, check out this website below
