Surnames of Co. Down: Murnin & variant spellings

Dr. Edward McLysaght, who headed the Genealogical Office in Dublin for many years, wrote the following about the Murnane name in his book, Irish Families:

"Murnane and Marrinan, with some other spelling variants, are basically the same name, being anglicized forms of the Irish O'Murnain, which Woulfe states is itself a corruption of O'Mananain, a Thomond name derived from that of the ancient seagod Manannan. Presumably he did not make this statement without evidence but I have found no corroboration of it. The Fiants of the last quarter of the sixteenth century contain no O'Manannan but have a number of entries for Marrinan, O'Marnane, etc., all in counties Limerick, Kerry and West Cork." http://www.murnane.org/name.htm

I believe our Marner surname stems from Murnin.
