Throughout history, very few Irish surnames have exclusively maintained their original forms. Before being translated into English, Hannaghan appeared as O Dubhain, where the first portion of the word is dubh, which means black, and the second portion is probably derived from some obsolete Irish personal name.

The surname Hannaghan was first found in County Sligo (Irish: Sligeach), in the province of Connacht in Northwestern Ireland, from very ancient times.
