SOURCES AND NOTES:
“The khe in Mackhellin gives a sound very close to qui as in quiche (not as in quick). And the final vowel is a schwa, for which a, e or i could easily be used. So phonetically MacQuillan and Mackhellin can be almost identical. I wouldn’t be surprised if it also appears as McKillen.” Best wishes, Andrew
