In Reply to: The meaning/origin of the name by Jonathon of 37

Younie has been spelled many ways down through the years. Some of the orginal spellings are Inie,Eunie,Younney, Ennie, Oynie,Ewnie,etc. The Younie's are a sept of the Innes Clan of northern Scotland from Morayshire and the areas of Rothes, Elgin, Forres, Aberlour, and Speymouth. The exact meaning eludes me but is probably Gaelic in extract or from earlier Pict period.
