I have a funny feeling it's an Irish name, or is derived from an Irish
name. I know there is a name McGeeney which is pronounced some thing
similar to Moginie. Also, the fact that Jim once was credited as Seamus on
an album has implanted in my mind the idea that he has Irish rots, which
makes a McGeeney-Moginie tie-up more plausible.

I'm probably clutching at straws though.
