The names Scannell, Scanlon and Scanlan in Ireland all derive from the native Gaelic O'Scannail Sept, taken from a word meaning 'contention'. There were several distinct Septs but the most important were based in the Province of Munster and in County Cork in particular. Other Septs were located in Counties Galway, Clare and further North in Fermanagh.

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.
