My legal birth name: McMeins.My mother stated that my father said the "s" was silent and the name was pronounced in three (3) syllables as "Mc-me-in."
My grt-grandfather William Henry McMeins is listed in the 1920 census as "Henry Meins."
His father John is listed on the same marriage certificate as "McMain, McMiens, McMean."
So, I believe myself to be the Chicago metro McMxxxx. I'm thinking the line goes like this:
