Irvine ancient capital of Scotland?

It's silly season with the historians again. Apparently Irvine may have been the ancient capital of Scotland, because it sounds a bit like Evonium, cited by Boece in the 15th century - or something like that.

For more on the nonsense, see http://news.scotsman.com/news/Stone-of-Destiny-39from-Ayrshire.6665396.jp.

My son will be delighted though, as he was born there - my liege!
