Meaning & History

English patronymic from MANN.
Irish adopted as an English equivalent of Gaelic Ó Mainnín ‘descendant of MAINNÍN’, probably an assimilated form of MAINCHÍN, a diminutive of manach ‘monk’. This is the name of a chieftain family in Connacht. It is sometimes pronounced Ó Maingín and Anglicized as MANGAN.
