    Irish and Scottish: shortened form of McSweeney , from Gaelic Mac Suibhne ‘son of Suibhne’, a personal name meaning ‘pleasant’. Loss of initial Mac in this surname seems to have been encouraged by the Irish variant Ó Suibhne. For the Scottish form Mac Shuibhne with loss of the final syllable and lenition of the personal name after Mac, compare McSween and McQueen .

    Americanized form of French Choiniere .
