Two Origins of the Chinnis Name

I have checked the Ellis Island website and found two Chinnises. One, Costantinos Chinnis, was from Ektiminion, Greece. The other was Peter Chinnis from Ilosva, Hungary. Peter was of Ruthen enthnicity. I think these people were in the Ukraine. It is all very interesting. I do wonder why some of what we have looked at in the census information said Scotland. I have been checking the Scottish clan sites for months now and there are no Chinnises in Scotland that I have found.
