The O hoisin surname is an Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hOisín or "descendant of Oisín," a personal name derived from the word "os," meaning "deer." Others suggest that the name came from Oisín, a poet and warrior of the fianna in Irish mythology.

O hoisin Early Origins



The surname O hoisin was first found in Connacht, where the name has long been found. The name Ó hOisín occurred in all the Irish provinces save Ulster in 11th and 12th century Annals. Hugh O'Hession was the first Archbishop of Tuam, Co. Galway (1152-1161).The family is primarily associated with North and East Galway and South Mayo. Some Anglicized their name to Usher, thus confusing it with the more common Ushers of Norman descent. The Hishon form of this name was found in County Tipperary.[1]CITATION[CLOSE]
