O Conarain is the original Irish surname from which Conran is derived, and of which Condron is a popular, more modern variant.

 More

The surname Conran was first found in Leinster, where the name was recorded as Conran, O'Conran, and O'Coneran in the 16th and 17th centuries. The place name Ballyconran in County Wexford indicates that the name may have been prominent and influential there at some point. In Ulster, there was a Coneran family listed in 1603, as coarbs of the "parish church of the Mill" in the barony of Tirkennedy, County Fermanagh. However, the name appears to have died out in that region.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Conran, Condron, Coneran, O'Conran, O'Coneran and others.
