Origins Available: Irish, Scottish


The Strathclyde clans of the Scottish/English Borderlands were the first people to use the name McCormac. It is derived from the Gaelic name MacChormaig, which derives from the given name Cormac, meaning charioteer.

McCormac Early Origins



The surname McCormac was first found in Dumfriesshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Dhn Phris), a Southern area, bordering on England that today forms part of the Dumfries and Galloway Council Area, where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.
