Origin:Irish
Meaning:little fire
Endowed with youthful vigor, Egan is an Irish masculine name that embraces the very essence of eagerness. Egan stems from the old Gaelic clan name Mac Aodhagáin and means "little fire" from the root aedh. It's a translation that celebrates passion and drive—a sentiment furthered by Mac Aodhagáin's lineage as a clan of Brehons (esteemed judges) to kings and landowners alike.
