The name Sloan in Ireland is derived from the native Gaelic O'Sluaghain Sept that is taken from a Gaelic word meaning 'army'. The Sept was based in East Ulster, in Counties Armagh and Down in particular and it is in these Counties that the majority of descendants can still today be found. The variant Sloyan can be found in County Mayo.

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.
