McMullen History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: Irish , Scottish


Today's Irish surnames are underpinned by a multitude of rich histories. The name McMullen originally appeared in Gaelic as either O Meallain, O Maolain or Mac Maolain. The first surname is derived from the word meall, which means pleasant. The second and third surnames are derived from maol, which means bald.


Early Origins of the McMullen family


The surname McMullen was first found in the province of Connacht (Irish: Connachta, (land of the) descendants of Conn) where the Mullen, Mullin and Mullan spellings were popular. They were descended from the Kings of Connacht and are of the same basic stock as the O'Concannons. Branches were also found in Cork, Limerick, and Clare where the Mullane and Mullins spellings were the most frequent. Some were found north in Ulster and Tyrone and Derry. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
