McCuddy Spelling Variations
During the Middle Ages, a standardized literary language known by the general population of Ireland
was a thing of fiction. When a person's name was recorded by one of the few literate scribes, it was up that particular scribe to decide how to spell an individual's name. So a person could have several spelling variations
of his name recorded during a single lifetime. Research into the name McCuddy revealed many variations, including Cadden, Caden, Caddin, McCadden, McWadden and others.
