Gaffney is a name of Irish origin that is taken from a number of distinct Gaelic Septs from various parts of the country. O'Gamhna, O'Geibheannaigh and Mac Conghamhna are three of the main Septs who used Gaffney as the anglicized form of their name. Other translations resulted in the same Sept names being changed to Caulfield, Keaveney and MacCarron.

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.
