Grennan fairly numerous: Offaly, Wexford, Mayo. Ir. Ó Grianáin, grian, sun, was a feminine name in Irish legend. However, the name is of Norman origin in Leinster. MIF.
Grennon rare: Dublin. See Grennan.
Ó Grianáin Greenan, Grennan: cuíosach líonmhar: an Dún, Muineachán, Cabhán: líon beag: Maigh Eo, mar a raibh siad sean-bhunaithe. Is cosúil gur clann eile a bhí in Ulaidh. Tá an log-ainm Ballygrennan coitinn i Luimneach ach is Baile Uí Dhroighneáin atá ann. Bhí ainm baineann, Grian, ann sa luath-aois - b'fhéidir go bhfuil baint éigin leis.
