An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


On the Scottish west coast, the Micken family was born among the ancient Dalriadan clans. Their name comes from the devotion of an ancestor to St. Michael. The Gaelic form of the surname is Mac Giolla Mhicheil, which means son of the servant of St. Michael.

Micken Early Origins



The surname Micken was first found in Angus (Gaelic: Aonghas), part of the Tayside region of northeastern Scotland, and present day Council Area of Angus, formerly known as Forfar or Forfarshire, where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.
