According to a distant relative (we share a common ancestor, three or four times removed), my great, great grandmotherís maiden name was Dugnon. However, I have seen at least one published reference to her where her maiden name is given as Dagan.
I recently received some correspondence suggesting that Dugnon may be a derivative of the name O'Duibhgeannain, the more common derivatives of which are Degnan, Dignan and Duignan.
I also came across an inquiry at a County Leitrim message board whether, among other names, John Conboy and Mary Duignan, parents of a child born in July of 1865 in Rinn, were the same as John Conboy and Mary Dugnon, parents of a child born in December of 1866 in Rinn.
Any suggestions as to how, or whether, I might determine if Dugnon is a surname derived from O'Duibhgeannain, and/or if it might be a variant of Degnan, Dignan or Duignan, will be appreciated.
