SURNAME DICTIONARY/ SLOINNTE NA h-EIREANN

Mac Mathghamhna: Mac Mahon: an-líonmhar: an Clár-Luimneach-Tiobraid Árann- Ciarraí agus Muineachán. Freagraíonn an dáileadh sa leis an dá chlann stairiúla: (1) an dream i dTuathmhumhain a bhí suite i gCorca Bascinn agus a shíolraigh ó Mhathúin, gar-mhac le Brian Bóroimhe; (2) clann Oirghialla a bhí cumhachtach sa dúiche sin agus gur cuireadh a dtaoiseach deireannach chun báis i Londain i 1644. Chuaidh cuid acu ar an Mór-Roinn tar éis treascairt an 17 céad agus díobh san do b'ea Patrick Mac Mahon (1808-1893), Uachtarán na Fraince agus saighdiúir céimiúil. Brí: féach Ó Mathúna. IF.
MacMahon: Very numerous: Clare-Limerick-Tipperary-Kerry and Monaghan-Cavan-Louth. Ir. Mac Mathghamhna, "bear-calf". Mod. Mac Mathúna. Two septs: one of Thomond (Clare) and related to the O'Briens; the other of Oriel (Monaghan). SGG, IF, GPN.
Mahon: Very numerous: South East, Midlands, Ulster, Connacht. Ir. Ó Macháin (Ulster); Ó Mócháin (Connacht). This latter seems to give rise to most Mahons in the South.MIF.
Ó Macháin: Mahon, Vaughan: líonmhar i gConnacht. Bhí dhá chlann tábhachtach ann: (1) i gCill Mac Duach - is cosúil gur Baile Uí Mhacháin ba chóir a bheith ar Bhaile Uí Bheacháin sa cheantar san; (2) dream a bhain le Athracht, an ban-naomh, i gCúl Ó bhFinn, Sligeach. Choiméad siad a crois agus bhí cáil orthu faoina bhflaithiúlacht le lucht léinn. Féach Ó Mocháin, leis.
