DINAN Family History

This interesting and rare surname is an occasional variant of "Dinneen", which is the Anglicized form of the Gaelic "O'Duinnin", from the Gaelic personal name "Donn" which comes from "donn", brown. Denning with Diana and Diane was found on the list of synonyms equated with Dineen (a name which means the same or nearly the same as another) used by emigrants which was compiled by the Cunard company. The great majority of Dineens are found in County Cork, especially in the south western part anciently known as Corca Laoidhe.

Stepehn James Dinan, known professionally as Steve Dinan. Currently alive, born 10/31/1953 in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. Famous for Dinan BMW, as an auto tuner and race-car designer and tuner and son of relatively famous engineer Thomas James Dinan who worked for Conductron, a wholly-owned subsidiary of McDonnell-Douglas. I don't know much about his career, because it was all top secret, but he designed and headed the team that built the electrical systems of the testing apparatus for most of the Gemini and Apollo space missions, and the F-15 aircraft.
