Name Meaning

Scottish: variant of Manners , in which the z originally represented Middle English letter Ê’ (yogh), representing a sound similar to modern English y. The surname is still pronounced mingiz in Scotland. It has been Gaelicized as Méinn, from which come the English forms Mein and Mien. The patronymic forms McMenzies, McMon(n)ies, McMin(n), and McMyn represent adapations of the name to the predominant pattern of Highland surnames.
