Whelan Genealogy & History

Whelan comes from the pre-tenth-century Gaelic O'Faolain, meaning descendant of Faolan, which in turn means young wolf, so this is the son of a young wolf. Some of the many different spellings are Phelan, O'Failin, O'Phelan, Phaelan, Whelehan, Wealleans, Feolande, and Fyland. The family motto is God is my strong tower. Whelan family history tells us that John Phelan is the first known spelling of the name; he was bishop of Ossory, Kilkenny, Ireland, in 1437. Two members of the Whelan genealogy are tailor Patrick J. Whelan and former San Francisco mayor George J. Whelan.
