Last name origins & meanings:

  1. Welsh: from the Old Welsh personal name Morcant, which is of uncertain but ancient etymology.
  2. Irish: importation of the Welsh surname, to which has been assimilated more than one Gaelic surname, notably Ó Muireagáin (see Merrigan).
  3. Scottish: of uncertain origin; probably from a Gaelic personal name cognate with Welsh Morcant.
  4. Morgan is one of the oldest and commonest of Welsh surnames, but there is also a Scottish family called Morgan, established from medieval times in Aberdeenshire, with connections with the McKays. The Scottish name is probably not the result of Welsh migration, but was established independently.
