Origin

Originally the town was named Saint-Iunan (Saint Breton).

The name of Saint-Iunan is mentioned by Alain III de Rohan as early as 1184 in the charter of foundation of the abbey of Bon-Repos.

Saint-Aignan was later adopted. But Aignan, bishop of Orleans in VI century, known for having fought Attila and the Huns, probably has nothing to do with Iunan (or Inan) originally named after a small locality dependent on the Rectorate of Cléguerec . The name of Aignan or Agnan is found in the name of thirty cities or villages in France.

The Bishop of Vannes, Saint Morvan, was probably buried in the territory of Saint-Aignan in the seventh century.

Under the Ancien Régime we find small seigneuries such as La Villéon and Du Fou.

Saint-Aignan is a dismemberment of the old parish of Cléguérec. At first truce of the parish of Cléguérec, Saint-Aignan was erected in parish in 1802 and in commune in 1790.
