Doran Genealogy & History

Doran arises from an anglicized variation of the old Gaelic O'Deoradhain. O denotes male descendent and Deoradhain is from deoradh, meaning stranger or wanderer, thus the name indicates a male descendent of someone new to the area. Other spellings include Doron, Dorain, O'Deorain, and O'Doran. Doran family history provides Maurice Doran, Bishop of Leighlin in Leinster, England, as the first known recording of the name in 1523. The Dorans were prominent antiquarians and owned three manuscript copies of the Tripartite Life of St. Patrick. Some members of Doran genealogy include comic book writer and artist Colleen Doran, literary critic and poet Madeleine Doran, and documentary film-maker Jamie Doran.
