Name Meaning

Scottish and Irish:

Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Eoghain ‘son of Eoghan’, a widespread and old personal name, possibly derived from eo ‘yew’, meaning ‘born of the yew-tree’ (see Ewen ). It was Latinized as Eugenius (see Eugene ). This was the name of one of the two sons of Niall of the Nine Hostages; the other was Conall. The usual spelling in Ireland is McKeown .

Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Eathain ‘son of Eathan’, a personal name from Latin Johannes (see John ). John was taken into Irish as Eoin at first; Seán is a later form. In later Irish, as in the surnames, the personal names Eoghan and Eoin were often confused.
