I ran across a biography of George M. Cohan yesterday and ran across an interesting comment regarding the family name. It was noted that George M's father's name was Jerry Keohane as you noted.It was Jerry who had changed it to Cohan for theatrical purposes. What was interesting was the comment that the name Jerry brought from Ireland was O'Caomhan which he intially changed to Keohane and thereupon to Cohan.
