Origins Available: English, Irish


The Philbin surname in Ireland derives from several sources, but there was certainly a native Gaelic name which evolved into such names as MacPhilbin and MacPhillips.

Philbin Early Origins



The surname Philbin was first found in Connacht (Irish: Connachta, (land of the) descendants of Conn), where historian O'Donovan, in the Annals of the Four Masters (1355) lists MacPhilbin as one of the chiefs of the district then known as Sil Anmachada in east Galway.
