MACMICHAEL Family HistoryRecorded in various modern spellings including MacMichael, McMichael, McMichell, McMickell, and possibly others, this is an early medieval Scottish surname. It is a developed form of the Gaelic Mac gille Micheil, meaning the son of the follower of St. Michael. The prefix "gille", in Irish "giolla", literally means servant, but is used in a religious sense as "devotee or follower". After the famous Crusades of the 12th century, the early Christian saints were popular in both Ireland and Scotland. Holy men who took up a specific saint as the focal point for their beliefs, found a ready audience amongst the native population.
