Last name origins & meanings:

  1. Irish: Gaelicized version of a surname of Norman origin, from the personal name Pagan meaning ‘rustic’.
  2. Irish: in some cases it is a reduced Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Fágáin or Ó Faodhagáin, which are probably dialect forms of Ó hÓgáin (see Hogan, Hagan) and Ó hAodhagáin (see Hagan). Irish lenited f (spelled fh) is soundless, and a number of words beginning with vowels have gained an initial f in some dialects; such seems to be the case here.
  3. Irish: occasionally an Anglicized form of Mac Phaidín (see McFadden) or Ó Fiacháin (see Feehan).
