KERNAGHAN Family History

Recorded in a wide variety of spellings which seemingly include: Kernaghan, Kernohan, Carnaghan, Carnalan, Carnaman, Carnan, and Carnilian, this is a surname of Gaelic and Irish origins. It derives from the ancient name O' Cearnachain, itself a nickname meaning 'The descendant of the victorious one', and a name given to the first chief of the clan. Quite who was victorious and why, is not known, but as much of the early history of Ireland revolves around the victories of the famed Brian Boru, High King of Ireland in the 11th century, it is possible that there is some association.
