Multiple Origins for the Surname Egan


German


The distinguished and ancient surname German surname Egan is patronymic in origin, deriving from the name of the father of the original bearer. In this case, the name is derived from "Egino," the Old High German form of the personal name "Egon." The given name was popular among the Allemanic and Swabian nobility during the Middle Ages, and was thus handed down through these noble lines when hereditary surnames became common in Germany.

Egan Early Origins



The surname Egan was first found in Swabia, where it was a favorite personal name of the nobles of the region; it was borne by Egeno of Fürstenberg, Swabia in 1351. The earliest known bearer of the surname was Benz Ege, who was a resident of Rottweil in 1351. The young Egan family was instrumental during this early period, figuring prominently in the early history of the region and contributing greatly to the development of medieval Swabian society.
