MacGowan

The Irish occupational name of MacGowan meaning 'Son of Smith' is fairly common. In both the two books of Edward Rutherfurd's Irish saga, the fictional family of MacGowan derive from Goibniu, a wise and cunning goldsmith of preceltic descent, and thereafter they are nearly always present in the tale as craftsmen, merchants, advisors and sometimes revolutionaries.
