Mac Eoin Quite numerous: Dublin, Galway etc. Ir.Lang. See Mac Keon, Owens.
Mac Eoin Mac Keown & rl: an-líonmhar i gCúige Uladh. Tháinig Muintir Bisset ó Albain go h-Aontroim sa 13 céad agus ghlacadar chucu an sloinne Mac Eoin; ach ós rud é go raibh Eoghan agus Eoin an-choiteann mar ainmneacha pearsanta, d'fhéadfadh an sloinne éirí in aon áit - féach an comh-ainm Sasanach, Johnson. IF & SGG.
Owens Very numerous: all areas, especially Ulster. Ir. Ó h-Eoghain, Mac Eoghain, from first name Eoghan (yew-born). This name may also be of British origin, especially from Wales. It appears to be cognate with Ir. Eoghan. IF & DBS.
