Cowan Genealogy & History

Cowan is a Scottish surname. Among the several possible origins of the name include Gobhainn, which means a smith or blacksmith, and Gowan, which is a type of Scottish wildflower. Cowan family history also shows that it is possible that the name might be an anglicized form of the old Gaelic names of either MacEoghain or MacEoin, which means "son of the well-born." These names were both derived from the Greek name "Eugene", meaning "well-born" or "born lucky". Both of these names indicate that there were originally family members who were wealthy or well off. Cowan genealogy includes the alternative spelling Cowen.
