An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


Scotland's western coastal mountains and the desolate Hebrides spawned the line of the McHardie family. The name McHardie was originally a nickname for a brave person. This surname is a nickname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. Nicknames form a broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, and can refer directly or indirectly to one's personality, physical attributes, mannerisms, or even their habits of dress. The surname McHardie comes from the Old French and Old English word hardi, which means brave.

McHardie Early Origins



The surname McHardie was first found in Lanarkshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Lannraig) a former county in the central Strathclyde region of Scotland, now divided into the Council Areas of North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, and the City of Glasgow, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
