The names MacAwley, McAuley and Cawley are derived from two distinct native Gaelic Septs. The MacAmhlaoibh Sept was located in County Fermanagh and was a branch of the ruling Maguires. The MacAmhalghaidh Sept was located in County Westmeath where the name is sometimes anglicized as Magawley. Gawley and MacCawley are other variants of these names.

A Sept or Clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors had a common surname and all inhabited the same lands.
