An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The surname McCorlett comes from the Old Norse forename Thorliotr, meaning "Thor-people." It was Gaelicized to MacThorliotr; however in Gaelic the letters "Th" are not pronounced after the prefix "Mac," thus the surname came to be elided to MacCorlett.

McCorlett Early Origins



The surname McCorlett was first found in on the Isle of Man. The Vikings had conquered the island from the Celts in the 9th century, and ruled it from Dublin. They settled on the island and intermarried with the Gaelic Scoti people, who had migrated from Ireland to Man and Scotland much earlier.
