MCKEEVER Family HistoryRecorded in many forms including MacKeever, MacIvor, MacIver, Makiver, Maccure, and Maceur, as well as the short forms commening "Mc", this is an ancient Scottish and Gaelic clan surname. It is however ultimately of Norse-Viking pre 7th century origins, and derives from the personal name Ivarr, the later Imhair, introduced into Scotland and Ireland at that time. It is said that in the 9th century, a Norse chief called Imhair joined with Olaf, the White, king of Dublin, in an attack on the south west coast of Scotland.
