SKEEN Family HistoryRecorded in several forms including O' Skehan, MacSkeagan, MacSkin, Skeen, Skene, Skeene, Skehan, Skehen, Skehens, Skin, and possibly others, this most interesting and unusual surname is of pre 10th century Old Gaelic origins. Derived from the ancient words "sceathin" meaning a bush or clump of trees, or "sceach", a briar, it can be either Scottish or Irish. If Scottish it can be locational from the barony of Skene in the county of Aberdeenshire, and the earliest recordings are to be found from this region.
