Nevin, Nevins, Nevinson, Nevison—These four names are the anglicised forms of the Scottish name McNevin. The Gaelic form is Mac Giolla-Naoimhein.

This name McNevin has no relationship with the Connacht sept of the same name McNevin, which in its original form is Mac Cnaimhin. Co. Galway is its location.
