The surname Kissane is an Anglicization of the Irish "O Ciosain," and has often been changed into the more English sounding Cashman where it is typically found in County Cork. However the Kissane spelling is still used in County Kerry, probably due to its distance from English settlements and influence. The root word "cios" roughly translates as "tribute" or "rent."

Kissan Early Origins



The surname Kissan was first found in Counties Kerry and Cork (Irish: Corcaigh) the ancient Kingdom of Deis Muin (Desmond), located on the southwest coast of Ireland in the province of Munster.

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Forti et fideli nihil difficile
Motto Translation: To the brave and faithful nothing is impossible
