About the Shannon surname

This Surname started out in Ireland,and has been a very respected name for anyone who has been given the rite to hold it and treat it with the respect it truly deserves! My great- Great Grandfather was from northern Ireland and migrated to the United States to live his life with a greater chanch for his Family! So, i hold the Shannon name with a great sence of pride,as do my Children and their's, it's never been put down by anyone, for any reason,and I am so very proad to have been given this honorable name,i only hope that i have served it well! Here is the correct spelling in celtec ( O' seanain) for those of you fortunate enough to have been given the honor to hold this name! Keeping this name safe over the years for me is a Family trust that my Father Gave to me as a young boy,he explained to me all that he knew about my proud Family, and intrusted me to keep it in good tact! That i have in honor of my Father! Thomas Edward Shannon
