The name McIlwee is derived from
the Gaelic Mac Giolla Bhuidhe sept
name. This name translates from
the words 'giolla' meaning 'lad'
or 'youth' and 'buidhe' which
means 'yellow'. Thus the name
literally translates as 'son of
the yellow youth'. This sept was
located in Counties Donegal and
Derry in the very North of Ireland.
Variants of the name include McEvoy,
McGilloway, McVeagh and McAvoy.
A Sept is an ancient form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
