O'Rourke is an Irish patronymic surname, from the Gaelic O'Ruairc, meaning the son of Ruairc, from the Old Norse Hrothekr, a personal name meaning famous king. The family was long-established in Ireland, owning significant estates in counties now around the border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

O'Rourke, widely-traveled Canadian infielder Frank O'Rourke, and former Irish Cabinet member for Education, Health, and Public Enterprise Mary O'Rourke.
