Origin: The surname Vaughan is one of just a few Welsh surnames derived from pure Celtic sources. It illustrates the influence of English customs on a family located in a bilingual border area where both English and the Welsh language interact. The name Vaughan has its origins in the Welsh epithet Fychan. This translates from Welsh as the younger or smaller (rather than small or little). So the name Rhosier Fychan, translates as 'young Roger'
