Recent DNA research and a study of primary sources show us that in the case of our family the origin of the surname is Mac Eáin. The McCains are a classic Gaelic patronymic clan. The Patriarch of the clan was named Eáin ~ a loan word to Gaelic from the Latin Iohannes which in turn is from the Hebrew y'hohanan, meaning 'Jehovah has favoured.' Eáin was a form of Iohannes that is found in the Gaelic dialect in use in Argyll, the southern Isles & parts of Ulster from the 15th Century onward.

The term on this list I've come across the most in reading and show's I've watched is bonnie. It says it means 'beautiful' which is true but I've also seen that it also serves as a response, usually meaning good, or great. I also think it's interesting that their term for dinner is tea.
