The surname McGivney comes from the original Irish Mac Dhuibhne.

McGivney Early Origins



The surname McGivney was first found in County Cavan. The name appears in the Annals of Loch Ce when Mathew MacGivney (Mac Dhuibhne,) Bishop of Kilmore from 1286 to 1307, was listed as having died in 1314. The Four Masters also mention him as well as two other ecclesiastics, John MacDhuibhne, arch-deacon of Drumlahan in 1343, and Farsithe MacDhuibhne (d.1464,) Bishop of Kilmore.
