Surname Dictionary

Keon rare: scattered. Ir. Mac Eoghain. More usually MacKeon, q.v.
Keown fairly numerous: Fermanagh, Down etc. MacLysaght has given Ó Ceotháin in Fermanagh, but the general conclusion is that it is one of the many synonyms of the basic Mac Eoghain, which appears as Magone, MacCone, MacCune, MacEwen, MacGeown.

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.
MacGeown numerous: Armagh-Down-Tyrone-Antrim- Monaghan-Louth. Ir. Mag Eoghain. From first name Eoghan. See also Mac Keown.
