SURNAME DICTIONARY/ SLOINNTE NA h-EIREANN

Gearon: Very rare: Tipperary. Ir. Ó Géaráin - see Guerin.
Geran: rare: Cork. Ir. Ó Géaráin. See Gueran.
Guerin: numerous: Limerick-Clare- Kerry, Cork. Ir. Ó Géaráin, géar = sharp. This name relates to the Uí Fiachrach of Connacht, so the connection with the Munster Guerins is tenuous. There was a Huguenot name Guérin, but this would hardly account for the name in Limerick and Kerry. See also Gaynor. SI & SGG.
Ó Géaráin: Guerin: líonmhar: Luimneach-Ciarraí-an Clár-Corcaigh. Bhí an sloinne seo i Iorras, Maigh Eo in anallód ach is cosúil gur clann eile Muimhnigh an lae inniu. Bhí Úgóineach dar b'ainm Jacob Guerin sa Ráth (Corcaigh) i 1670 agus bhí an sloinne le fáil i measc na bhFrancach san, san 18 céad. Chomh maith leis sin, bhí Fionnbharr Ó Gearadhain ina thaoiseach i Longfort sa 11 céad. Uaidhsean a tháinig an sloinne Mag Fhionnbhairr go bhfuil Gaynor orthu anois. Brí, b'fhéidir, géar = faobhrach nó searbh. MIF.
