Origin of last name

HAGAN : 1: Irish (Tyrone Armagh and Derry): shortened Anglicized form of O'Hagan from Gaelic Ó hÁgáin ‘descendant of Ógán’ a personal name from a diminutive of óg ‘young’. Compare Hogan.2: English: from the Middle English personal name Hagan or Hagen mostly representing Old Danish Haghni or Old Norse Hǫgni ‘protector patron’ especially in Norfolk where the name is well attested in the 12th- and early 13th-centuries. It may have been reinforced by Norman use of ancient Germanic Hagano Hageno Hagino but there is no certain evidence for this in Anglo-Norman England. In Norfolk the name was confused with the Middle English personal name Hakun. It also developed to Hane and Hayne (see Hain).3: English: variant of Hacon with voicing of the intervocalic consonant from the Middle English personal name Hacun (Old Norse Hákun from ancient northern Germanic elements meaning ‘horse’ + ‘kindred’). Hacon is found mainly in Norfolk and Suffolk.
