The name Fanning in Ireland is of Norman origin since the twelfth century. The settlers formed a Sept along Gaelic lines and their influence can be seen by the survival of the village of Fanningstown in County Limerick. The O'Fionnain Gaelic Sept of North Connaught also occasionally anglicized their name to Fanning, but more usually to Finan.

A Sept or Clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors had a common surname and all inhabited the same lands.
