This is a very difficult clan surname to prove the precise origins, it may be Scottish, it may be Irish, or it could be Gaelic. The Scots regard MacKechnie as a member of the Clan MacDonald, the most numerous and prosperous of Scottish clans. This is quite possible as MacDonald is recorded in a bewildering variety of spellings including McConile in 1571, Mackoneye in 1586 and M'Kconil in 1597 amongst the many wonderful examples of how to spell the name MacDonald!
