The name Higgins in Ireland is derived from either Anglo settlers who arrived into the country in the seventeenth century or from native Gaelic Septs who adopted it as the anglicized version of their name. The main Sept which did this was the O'hUigin Sept who were based in County Sligo. The name is still among the one hundred most commonly found in Ireland.

A Sept or Clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors had a common surname and all inhabited the same lands.
