The distinguished surname Druhan is of ancient Irish origin. It is derived from the Gaelic "O Druachain," meaning "son of Druachan."

Druhan Early Origins



The surname Druhan was first found in County Wexford (Irish: Loch Garman), founded by Vikings as Waesfjord, and located in Southeastern Ireland, in the province of Leinster, where a Maurice O Droughane, a husbandman of Ballincolane, received a pardon in 1569. Very early on, there was an ecclesiastical family called O Druchain in Armagh, and it is thought that there may be a connection between this family and those of the name Druhan.
