Where did the Irish Ohagan family come from? What is the Irish Ohagan family crest and coat of arms? When did the Ohagan family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Ohagan family history?Irish names tend to vary widely in their spelling and overall form. The original Gaelic form of the name Ohagan is O hAgain, which was earlier rendered as O hOgain. Traditionally, the name means young.
The Middle Ages saw a great number of spelling variations for surnames common to the Irish landscape. One reason for these variations is the fact that surnames were not rigidly fixed by this period. The following variations for the name Ohagan were encountered in the archives: Hagan, Hegan, Hagen, O'Hagan and others.
First found in County Tyrone (Irish:Tír Eoghain), the ancient territory of the O'Neills, now in the Province of Ulster, central Northern Ireland, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

A great mass of Ireland's native population left the island in the 19th century, seeking relief from various forms of social, religious, and economic discrimination. This Irish exodus was primarily to North America. If the migrants survived the long ocean journey, many unfortunately would find more discrimination in the colonies of British North America and the fledgling United States of America. These newly arrived Irish were, however, wanted as a cheap source of labor for the many large agricultural and industrial projects that were essential to the development of what would become two of the wealthiest nations in the western world.
