The Traynor ancient family history was found in the archives.

Surnames developed a wide number of variants over the centuries. Many different spelling variations of the same name can be traced back to a single original root. Also, when a bearer of a name emigrated from Ireland it was not uncommon that their original name would be incorrectly transcribed in the record books upon arrival at their new location. Some names have dozens of spelling variations. Some Surnames were also altered over the years based on how they sounded phonetically, by their sound, and depending on the prevailing political conditions it may have been advantageous to change a name from one language to another. This was especially so in Ireland where most Gaelic names were 'anglicized' at some stage.

Variants of the name Traynor include McTraynor, Trainer, Trainor, Treanor, McCrainor and McCreanor. This name is taken from the Gaelic MacThreinfhir, meaning 'son of the strong man', or 'champion'. The 'Mac' is still mostly retained in the variant form McCrainor, which is phonetically correct. McCreanor is the form of the name which occurs in the County Armagh Hearth Money Rolls of 1664, and in the Monaghan Hearth Money Rolls the name is found as McTreanor. In modern times Traynor and its variants are mostly found in the districts of Dungannon, Monaghan, Armagh, and in the County Dublin area.The Traynor family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Traynor descendants.
