Keegan Name Meaning

Keegan is the transferred use of an Anglicized Irish surname, from the Old Gaelic MacAodhagáin which was developed from the personal name Aodhagán (from Aodh). Aodh means 'fire' and was the name of a pagan Celtic fire/sun god. As a very early personal name, many other Irish names eventually develop from Aodh, and believe it or not, Keegan was one of them. The distinguished MacAodhagain clan originated in the west midwest of Ireland in present-day County Galway, and were high-ranking barristers (the ancient law that gives class) to the ruling families. A branch from this September was established further east (near present-day Dublin) where its name was anglicized to Egan and then in time to Keegan. As a given name, Keegan was adopted by the United States in the second half of the 20th century.
