The Irish name McKeown is taken
from a number of native Gaelic Septs,
especially the MacEoghain Sept of
Connaught and MacEoin Sept of Ulster.
These names are Gaelic forms of
the first name 'John'.
There are a wide number of variants
including Magone, MacCune, MacEwen
and even Caulfield. Johnson and
Johnstone have also been used as
anglicized versions of the Sept names.
A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
