Surnames that evolved in Scotland in the Middle Ages often appear under many spelling variations. These are due to the practice of spelling according to sound in the era before dictionaries had standardized the English language. Mcclung has appeared as MacLurg, McLurg, M'Lurg, M'Lorg, M'Lorc, M'Lork, M'Lurgh, M'Lurge, M'Lurgg, M'Clurg 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 ancient times, some say before the Norman Conquest in 1066. The legendary history of this prominent Ayrshire name claims descent from Loigire Lork, and early King of Ireland, the father of Aillil Aine.

Many Scots even fought against England in the American War of Independence to gain this freedom.
