Hogan is an Irish surname derived from Irish Ó hÓgáin, a patronymic of Middle Irish ógán, meaning "a youth", in the genitive case (cf. Modern Irish ógánach), itself from óg, "young" (ultimately cognate with English young), with a prothetic h. A surname of the same form was Anglicised as "Hagan" in Northern Ireland. Some southern bearers claim descent from an uncle of Brian Boru, High King of Ireland (1002–1014). Occasionally appears as an absorption of west Connacht (O')Houghegan (Irish: Ó hEochagáin). Hypothetically derivable from related words in Cornish and Welsh. People with the surname include: Allan Hogan (born 1943), Australian journalist Anni Hogan (born 1961), British musician and composer Ben Hogan (1912–1997), American golfer Blaine Hogan (born 1980), American actor Bosco Hogan (fl. late 20th century), Irish actor Brigid Hogan-O'Higgins (born "Hogan" 1932), Irish politician Chris Hogan (fl. late 20th century), American actor Chuck Hogan, American writer Daniel Hogan (Irish politician) (1899–1980), Irish Fianna Fáil politician, TD for Laois-Offaly and later a Senator
