Surname Dictionary

Mulrine fairly rare: Donegal-Trone-Derry. Ir. Ó Maoilriain. See Mulryan.
Mulryan mod.mos.: Tyrone-Derry, Galway, Longford etc. Ir. Ó Maoilriain, servant of Rian (? little king). This is the original of the very numerous Ryans. In such locations, they may represent separate septs, distinct from the Ryans of Tipperary, q.v.
Ó Maoilriaghain Mulryan, Mulryne: líon beag: Tír Eoghain-Doire, Gaillimh, Longfort & rl. Is cosúil gur bhain siad sa le clanna a bhí difriúil leis an mór-chlann i dTiobraid Árann atá aistrithe go Ó Riain anois. Bhí an chlann deireannach sa lonnaithe in Uaithne, idir Luimneach agus Tiobraid Árann agus is uathu-san a tháinig an slua mór Rianach atá le fáil i dTiobraid Árann i gcónaí. Níltear cinnte faoi bhrí an bhun-ainm Riaghan ach is cosúil go mbaineann le rí agus ríoga. SGG & SI.
Ó Riaghain Ryan: ní h-é seo an "Ryan" atá an-choitinn, sin Ó Maoilriain, q.v. Ach seo clann a bhí suite in Uí Dróna, Ceatharlach, in anallód. Ní féidir idirdhealú a dhéanamh orthu anois mar tá an phréamh chéanna ann: díspeagadh ar "rí".
Ó Riain Quite numerous scattered. Ir.Lang. See Ryan.
Ó Riain Ryan: an-líonmhar: Cúige Mumhan & Oir-dheisceart go speisialta. Ó Maoilriaghain le ceart. Bhí an chlann sa lonnaithe ar threorainn Luimnigh agus Thiobraid Árann i dtosach ach táid an-líonmhar tríd an dtír anois. Giorraíodh an sloinne go luath - bhí Mulryan ina mhionlach fiú sa 17 céad. Fear amháin díobh a mhaireann de shíor: Éamonn a' Chnuic (c.1680-1724), file, saighdiúir, rapaire agus ábhar amhráin mhóir. IF.
O'Ryan rare: Waterford-Tipperary etc. Ir. Ó Riain. See Ryan.
Ryan Very numerous: all areas, especially Munster and South East. Ir. Ó Maoilriain (Riain). From first name Rian, little king. The sept was located on the border of Tipperary and Limerick and is now one of the most numerous surnames. There was another Ó Riain in Carlow. The latter form is now the usual Irish version.
