MCILVEEN Family HistoryRecorded in an amazing number of spellings some very remote from the original forms, this interesting surname of Gaelic origins, and is particularly associated with North Ulster and the Western Isles of Scotland. These spellings include McElvine, McIleen, McIlenna, McIlveen, McIlvenna, McIlvane, McIlvoray, McIlvora, Milvorrie, Milvarnie, and no doubt many other more obscure styles. The origination is believed to be from the ancient Irish Mac Giolla Mheana, which translates as 'the son of the follower of Mheana.' This gentleman is believed to have been an early prophet or hermit from the pre 7th century.
