MCGRANE Family History

This is an interesting name of Irish and Scots origin. The Gaelic form is 'Mag Raighne', and means son of ('mag' or 'mac') Rayny, a pet form of Reginald. There seems to be some confusion as to which Irish sept this name belongs, but it is still fairly prevalent in Dublin and Ulster, particularly County Armagh and appears in Munster as O' Grainne or Greaney. It is also an old Galloway (Scotland) surname records show that in Dublin there was a schoolmaster of this name who wrote carols and ballads circa 1550.
