Last name: Gann
This interesting surname is the Anglicized form of the old Gaelic-Irish name "Mac Gann", which itself is the Connacht version of "Mac Cann", from "mac", son (of) and "cana", wolf-hound. In Irish, Mac Gann is "Mag Annaidh", the prefix, "Mac" changing to "Mag" when before a vowel. FOUND ON LINE

I'd guess English, but I'd be wrong.
Gann Name Meaning1) Irish: reduced form of McGann.
2) German: from the personal name Gano, or, in Austria, a short form of Candidus, a personal name from Latin candidus ‘bright’, ‘white’, ‘clear’, ‘beautiful’ (see Kann).
3) German: topographic name for someone who lived near an expanse of scree, Middle High German gant.
