Recent studies suggest the family name Monaghan dates back to the ninth century. First documented evidence of the surname dates to the county of Norfolk in 1461. The surname went global in the fifteenth and sixteenth century with the boom of the British empire and the setting up of colonies abroad.
Monaghan is currently at number 1786 of the UK's most common surnames. The county of Cornwall in England holds the largest density of families with the surname Monaghan. A late 20th century Monaghan was noted as a keen drinker after police allegedly escorted him out of no less than seven pubs in one evening. A tarnished history is clear, particularly around the summer of 1877 when Frank Monaghan stole a greyhound and was sentenced to jail.

The surname is historically linked with Saturn, causing Monaghan's to often be complex and mysterious. Changing horses in the middle of the race is another small quirk in the Monaghan personality which makes decisivness, and sticking to a decision difficult. Often like children, they require constant attention, admiration, and effort, getting upset if they dont get what they feel they deserve. 114
