MACQUEEN Family HistoryThis surname is an Anglicized form of the Old Scots Gaelic Mac Shuibhne, "Mac" and the shortened form "Mc" meaning son of, and "Shuibhne", an old Gaelic personal name which appears to mean easy-going or pleasant; hence "son of the pleasant one" the aspiration of the "s" causes the name when preceded by "Mac" to be pronounced like Mac Huin or Mac Wheen and so there are many forms of the surname recorded, for example M'Quhyn(e), M'Quhan, M'Quhen, Maquhon, Mc Quhenne, Mauchquhen and M'Kquyne. In the specific case of the Macqueens originating in the Isle of Skye off Scotland, the Norse Personal name Sveinn meaning servant or young man is believed to be the source of the surname.
