Ptolemy identifies the Erdini or Ernaigh as resident in the Fermanagh area in the second century A.D., and it is probably from them that the River and Lough Erne get their names. The Irish name for the region was Magh Eanagh, meaning "Country of the Lakes" (hence Fermanagh) or Magh Uire meaning "Country of the Waters" from which the Maguire's get their name. The Maguire or Mac Guire clan was the most powerful, and indeed the entire area was often referred to simply as Mac Guires country. (Notice how, centuries later, Maguire was still the most common name in the county ...) Lesser clans or septs included O'Muldoon, O'Slevin, McEntaggert, McGoldrick, O'Flanagan, O'Corcoran, McCorry, O'Keenan, McAuley, O'Bannon, O'Cassidy, O'Devine, McKiernan, O'Breslin, McManus, McGilroy, McGarraghan, McDonnell, McMulrooney, and O'Carbery.
