The surname Current was first found in County Waterford (Irish: Port Láirge), anciently the Deise region, on the South coast of Ireland in the Province of Munster, where they held a family seat from early times.

During the Middle Ages, a standardized literary language known by the general population of Ireland was a thing of fiction. When a person's name was recorded by one of the few literate scribes, it was up that particular scribe to decide how to spell an individual's name. So a person could have several spelling variations of his name recorded during a single lifetime. Research into the name Current revealed many variations, including Curran, Currans, O'Curren, Curren, Corren, Corrane, O'Curran, Currens, Currin, Corraine, Courrane, Courran, Courren and many more.
