Banahan Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Banahan Family History


Banahan Family History


The names Banahan and Banaghan in Ireland are derived from the native Gaelic O'Beannachain sept that was located in Counties Sligo and Leitrim. The origin of this name is the Gaelic word 'beannach', meaning 'beaked'. It is in the Western Counties that these names are still mostly found in modern times.

A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
