The ancestors of the McVeety family come from the ancient Scottish kingdom of Dalriada. The family name comes from Veaty. Mac means son of. MacVitti, therefore, means son of Vitti. Over time, the spelling of the name has changed, which is why the MacVitti is descended from Veaty.

Dalriadan families proliferated in North America. Their descendants still populate many communities in the eastern parts of both the United States and Canada. Some settled in Canada as United Empire Loyalists, in the wake of the American War of Independence. Families on both sides of the border have recovered much of their heritage in the 20th century through Clan societies and highland games. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name McVeety or a variant listed above: Alan MacWittie who settled in New England in 1685; Duncan McVittie arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1775.
