    Name Meaning

    Scottish and Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Gille Munna (McIlMunn) ‘son of the servant (or devotee) of (Saint) Munnu’, Munnu being a pet name for Saint Fintan of Taghmon. This name, which is also found in the form Mundu, from earlier Mo-Fhindu, is a hypocoristic form of Fionntan with the affective prefix mo- ‘my’. Although Fintan was an Irish saint, this surname appears to have been coined in Scotland, where there was a place called Kilmun ‘Saint Munnu's church’, near Inverary.
