Loughran comes from the Irish Ó Luachra – probably from the Irish for “bright” – a descriptive name. There were branches of the family in both Counties Armagh and Tyrone – where the name is still plentiful today.

Remember – at Your Irish Heritage we consider an “Irish Surname” to be one that belongs in your family. It may belong to an ancestor who lived in Ireland at one stage. We consider old Gaelic, Viking, Norman and planter names to be all Irish – if they fit this criteria.
