MORIN Family History

This is a very confusing surname. As O'Morahan, O'Moran, and Morahan, it is clearly of Irish origins, but as Moran, Morin, and Morain, which are also recorded in France, Ireland and England, it can be from any otf those countries. Taking Ireland first, the modern spelling originates from the pre 10th century Olde Gaelic O' Murchain, (the son of the descendant of Murdoch), and in the forms above has been very popular in counties Offally and Kildare since at least 1659 when it is shown to be the most numerous name in at least five baronies.

Morin Arnaud

Hello, I'm arnaud Morin from France (Brittany). I've made some genealogy research concerning my Morin ancestor and the family was settled in a little area in Brittany since at least the 17th century. I also did a DNA test and apparently I have more than a half of my gen coming from Wales,Scotland and Ireland. I'm thinking that maybe my family settled in Brittany during the migration that happened in the middle age from Great Britain because of Saxon invasions. Is there any other member who did or have more info concerning old settlements in Great Britain or Brittany ?
