MCGINLEY Family HistoryThis is an Irish surname from County Donegal in Ulster, although one which may also have some Scottish associations. Recorded in several spelling forms including MacGinlay, MacGinley, McGinley, McGinly, McGinnell, Ginlay, Ginley and Ginnell, it sometimes overlaps in the suriving recordings with MacKinley and McKinley, although this surname, it is claimed is of a quite different origin. However spelt this is a Gaelic surname of the pre 10th century. It is believed to derive from the ancient surname 'Mag Fhionnghaill', which translates literally as 'the son of the fair and brave one', a very pleasant meaning.
