Scottish, Manx, and Irish: nickname for a fair-haired man, from Gaelic bàn, Irish bán ‘white, fair’. This surname is common in the Highlands, first recorded in Perth in 1324. It is also found as a shortened form of McBain , from Mac B(h)eathain. As a Manx name (spelled Bane) this may be a shortened form of Manx Macguilley Vane, equivalent to Irish Mac Giolla Bháin ‘son of the fair youth’. Compare Irish Kilbane .
