The Mulvaney surname was an Anglicized form of the Gaelic Maoilmheana, meaning "descendant of Maoilmheana," a personal name meaning " chieftain of the Main (river)." In Donegal it may be an Anglicized form of Maolmhaghna

Mulvaney Early Origins



The surname Mulvaney was first found in County Derry, where they were hereditary ollavs of O'Cahan (O'Kane.) One of the first records of the name was O Maiol Mheanna mentioned in the Annals of Ulster in 1164 where the family claim descent for the from Eoghan, son of Niall of the None Hostages and was probably associated with the river Meana which flowed into Lough Neagh at Randalstown.

Another source claims that the name claims descent from the Donnelly line from Maolf Iona which meant in English "the devotee of wine" [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

As both authors referenced were Chief Heralds of Ireland, we must leave it up the reader to decide who is more accurate.
