The Irish name McKeown is taken from a number of native Gaelic Septs, especially the MacEoghain Sept of Connaught and MacEoin Sept of Ulster. These names are Gaelic forms of the first name 'John'. There are a wide number of variants including Magone, MacCune, MacEwen and even Caulfield. Johnson and Johnstone have also been used as anglicized versions of the Sept names.

A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
