Ryan Genealogy & History

Ryan is an Irish patronymic name, an anglicized form of the Old Gaelic O'Maoilriain, which may mean either son of the water chief or son of the water worshipper; the name is compound and very old, so the exact meaning is difficult to determine. Either way, Ryan family history enters the books when recorded in the late 14th century in the Medieval Records of County Tipperary. Ryan genealogy lays claim to many famous people, like Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan, former Rangers pitcher Nolan Ryan, and former California Representative Leo Ryan, the only member of Congress to be killed in the course of his official duties.
