The pronunciation of the name collected during the first Ordnance Survey, Bin a yoragaun, was not as one would expect from the current anglisation Ben Creggan. John O'Donovan interpreted this as Binn a Chorragain. This essentially the same as Fiachra Mac Gabhann’s interpretation, Binn an Charragáin [LME]. A slightly different version, Binn an Chreagáin, was given by Breandán Mac Aodha [MNIMA], The meaning is very similar, however.
