The name Savage in Ireland was assumed by the Munster based O'Sabhain Sept who also adopted the name Savin. Most descendants bearing this name however, derive from the County Down based Mac an tSabhaisigh family who arrived as Planters in the twelfth century and who became completely hibernicized.

A Sept is an ancient form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
