The names Shane and McShane in Ireland are derived from the native Gaelic MacSeain Septs who also frequently anglicized their name to Johnson. In Ulster the McShanes were a branch of the O'Neills and in Westmeath they were a branch of the O'Farrells. The name is today mostly found in Ulster, County Tyrone in particular.

A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
