Neice Surname History



In the mountains of Scotland's west coast and on the Hebrides islands, the ancestors of the Neice family were born. Their name comes from the personal name Naos, which is a dialectal form of Aonghus or Angus. The Gaelic form of the name is Mac Neis, which is derived from the earlier form Mac Naois; both of these mean son of Angus. Thus, the name Neice is a cognate of MacAngus and MacInnes.
