|Origin of Gannon, Meaning of Gannon
Origin: According to a keychain that I purchased in Ireland last February, it is: This is the anglicised version of the Gaelic Mag Fhiomnan meaning 'son of Fionnan'. This personal name derives from a diminutive form of 'fionn' meaning 'white or fair'. The name is most numerous in Co. Mayo as well as being borne by several early Irish saints. The motto for Gannon is 'With sword and valor'. Our branch of the family has been traced to Mohill, and there are still Gannons living there.
