Last name origin & meaning:
- Irish : Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Mocháin ‘descendant of Mochán’, a personal name from a diminutive of moch ‘early’, ‘timely’. In Connacht this name was changed to Mahon; it is also found translated into English as Early. It has been used to represent the Norman habitational surname de Mohun.
- Indian (Panjab and southern states) : Hindu name from Sanskrit mohana ‘fascinating’, ‘infatuating’, an epithet of the god Krishna. In the Panjab, it is a Brahman name based on the name of a clan in the Mohyal subgroup of Saraswat Brahmans; it probably evolved from an ancestral personal name. In the southern states this is only found as a male given name; it has also come to be used as a family name in the U.S. among familes from South India.
