The name Murdie is an age-old Dalriadan-Scottish nickname for a seagoing warrior. The Gaelic form of the name is Mac Mhurchaidh, which means son of the sea warrior.

Murdie Early Origins



The surname Murdie was first found in Argyllshire (Gaelic erra Ghaidheal), the region of western Scotland corresponding roughly with the ancient Kingdom of Dál Riata, in the Strathclyde region of Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Argyll and Bute, 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.

Records from that era show an enormous number of spelling variations, even in names referring to the same person. Over the years Murdie has appeared as MacMurdo, MacMurdie, MacMurdy, Murdoson, MacMurdiston and many more.
