Yeah, I kinda like it. Ewan McEwen, Jens Jensen. Rhyming.
You know, I think the original meaning of Mc or Mac - was "of the family" - so it is Ewan of the Ewens. And "sen" on the end, is I think, related to the frequent Germanic use of "son" - Jens son of Jens.
If they still followed that tradition - and I think some do, like say, in Iceland (?) - then your kids would have a last name of Redsen, eh?
Joking - just joking!
