*MacKevoil in the notes of Andrew Langís ďThe Highlands in 1750Ē is clearly a misprint, as the word to which it refers in the main text is McIlevoil. It is included here, however, as a significant illustration of the process by which so many variations appear; even as late as 1898, when this was published.

McGhavile appears here on the same basis, though the Gh would probably not have been sounded; making it more akin to the name McOvill: which is in fact recorded in a government document for the Lochaber Mímillans. If this version applies, so then may the variants of McHevoul / McHoul / McHowel: though it should not be assumed that these are always Mímillans, as the last two also occur as versions of Mícoul / Mídoul; i.e. Mídowel / Mídougal

** Mackmull / McMoyle etc. could as easily stand for the sons of bald men as for Mímillans; while Mívail is claimed by the Mígregors & Míkays as well as the Camerons (amongst whom it may be a version of Míphail).

***Macknilliam / McMilam etc. obviously could be versions of Míwilliam, especially those spelt with the final i. But as variants of Mímillian / Mímilliam abound; and as versions without the final i (such as McMillam) are clearly in some cases simple misprints of McMillan, itís quite possible some versions of McMilliam do also stand for Mímillan.

**** McVolan could be ďMíMhaolainĒ since mh is pronounced like the English v; but the record of it quoted by Somerled MacMillan actually occurs in a patronymic as vic Wolan (vic / mhic is genitive of mac; while w = v in medieval Scots), and seems in fact to be a misprint of vic Jhohan - i.e. mac John - so genuine sightings are still awaited.
