The variant of this name is Rearden. The sept of O'Riordan originated in Co. Tipperary, but they migrated to Co. Cork at such an early date they can be regarded as belonging to that county, where they are now far more numerous than anywhere else. The spelling of this place-name will be noted: Reardon is an alternative form of Riordan, which in Irish is O Riordain.

A special note about our Irish collection:
To search for a name first look for it without prefix, then under O', then under "Mac", then under Fitz. Keep in mind that Irish Surnames have many name variants. We have included the area in Ireland where the original bearer was registered, when known. All arms were recorded in Ireland.
Some of the research materials used in creating this collection were Irish Families-Edward MacLysaght, Burke's General Armoury 1878, Rietstap's Armorial General, Surnames of Ireland-MacLysacht, Encyclopaedia Heraldica, 1828, by William Berry, and Irish Arms-by Paul Murtaugh.
Please note that the term "family crest" is a misnomer. The crest is actually a portion of the coat of arms. It refers to the region above helmet that is on top of the shield, which often depicts beasts. Our coats of arms have omitted the crest portion of the arms.
