I was researching this very thing last night and found this site to be very helpful:http://www.scotclans.com/whats_my_clan/scottish_clans/n_list...
From what I found, it looks like Nivison came from Niven, which was part of the Cummings clan. If you click into that, you will see the kilt pattern.
I hope this is helpful!
