Spelling variations of this family name include: MacCarley, MacCarly, Terleti, Thelycht, MacTherlycht, McKarlich, McTarlach, McCarlach, McKerlich, McHerlich, McCharles, McTarlich and many more.

First found in Ayrshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Inbhir Àir), formerly a county in the southwestern Strathclyde region of Scotland, that today makes up the Council Areas of South, East, and North Ayrshire, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say before the Norman Conquest in 1066, and their name in Gaelic was "MacThearlaich" meaning "the son of Charles." Hence we have McTarlych which is the old Gaelic which some Clan members still subscribe to.

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Virtus auget honores
Motto Translation: Virtue increases honour.
