"Mc" is a Scottish prefix (meaning 'from', I believe). The word originally was Gaelic (Irish)-- it means 'a helmet'.

The word Maccabee is a Hebrew word with the root MKB, meaning 'hammer'. I doubt there is any relationship.

No. And the Maccabees were not a tribe; they were a single family. "Maccabee" was a descriptive title, not a name or a surname.See also the Related Link.
