There are a multitude of ancient meanings and variations associated with the Irish surnames that are now common throughout the modern world. The original Gaelic form of the name Hogan is Ó hÓgáin, meaning a descendant of Ógán’, a personal name derived from the Irish Gaelic word “og,” which means “young.”

The recording of names in Ireland in the Middle Ages was an inconsistent endeavor at best. The standardized literary languages of today were not yet reached and the general citizenry was illiterate. Research into the name Hogan revealed spelling variations, including Hogan, O’Hogan, Hogen, Hoggin and others.

First found in county Tipperary (Irish: Thiobraid Árann), established in the 13th century in South-central Ireland, in the province of Munster.

Irish families fled the English-colonized Ireland in record numbers during the 19th century for North America. Many of those destitute families died from disease during, and even shortly after, the long journey. Although those that immigrated before the Great Potato Famine of the 1840s often were granted a tract of land, those that arrived later were generally accommodated in urban centers or in work camps. Those in the urban centers would labor in the manufacturing sector, whereas those in work camps would to build critical infrastructures such as bridges, canals, roads, and railways. Regardless of when these Irish immigrants came to North America, they were critical for the rapid development of the young nations of the United States and Canada. Early immigration and passenger lists have recorded many early immigrants bearing the name of Hogan: Sebastian Hogan settled in New England in 1764; Daniel, David, Denis, Edward, James, John, Michael, Patrick, Robert, Thomas and William Hogan, all arrived in Pennsylvania between 1840 and 1870.
