MacCabe, McCabe are Anglicizations of MacCába (Irish Gaelic), meaning son of Cába. The nickname or personal name Cába, is of an uncertain meaning.
The MacCabes were originally from the Western Isles of Scotland, and settled in Ireland with the arrival of the Gallowglass (foreign soldiers from the highlands and isles of Scotland). The MacCabes were thought to have originally settled in Breifne, what is today County Cavan and County Leitrim.
