Unsure what surname should be - listed as Nciliwie

I know many times names were spelled as they were pronounced when recording christenings.
I am trying to figure out what name this could have been, it is listed as Jannet Nciliwie as the mother of Donald McNaughtan. She was most likely born between 1665 and 1675 in the Perth area.

Thanks for your help (as usual)!

Re: Unsure what surname should be - listed as Nciliwie

As she is from Scotland I'd be inclined to change the letter N at the beginning for a letter M.

Re: Unsure what surname should be - listed as Nciliwie

Thank you for all the info you gave.

This Jannet was married to John McNaughten, they had at least two sons - Malcolm born in 1691 and Donald (my line) born in 1694. Tracking back through Donald is how I found the surname Nciliwie. Because of these events I don't think the Janet Ncphael that married another John McNaughton in 1698 can be correct.

I will try a few of the other surname suggestions and see if I can track back Janet McPhilimy/McPhilimie.

Any other suggestions appreciated!

I am not an expert on Scottish Gaelic but what I think you have come across is the woman’s name in Gaelic, within the patronymic naming system (which preceded conventional surnames in Scotland). East Europeans and Nordic countries still use that system to varying degrees. The patronymic system names the man or woman after their father but the “surname” changes with each generation. So Donald son of Neil is Donald McNeil, but his son James is James McDonald or Donaldson, and so on. Janet daughter of Neil is Janet Ni Neil or NicNeil. And so on.

So whilst the males have surnames beginning Mc/Mac etc, the females have Ni or Nic (Mhic if they are married). So, in this case, she was Janet NicIlwie. Had she been male it would have been McIlwie.

Google Scottish patronymic naming for further information.

Incidentally, if you can get your head around it, it also means that when people with say, the surname MacDonald, all believe they are members of the clan MacDonald, they are generally mistaken. All it means is they had an ancestor named Donald. They could be from any clan at all, or none. Sorry if that shatters anyone’s sense of kinship with a particular clan.
