FORKER Family HistoryThis interesting and unusual name is of Irish and Scottish origin and is the modern Irish form of the Old Gaelic personal name "Fearchar". The derivation is from the Old Celtic elements meaning "man" and "dear" or "beloved". In the modern idiom, the variants include "Farguar, Faraker, Farragher, Farguhar and Forker". In its present form it is almost exclusively found in Counties Mayo and Galway, and in the form Fraher in South Munster. As a clan or sept in Scotland they are descended from the Laird of Macintosh who came from Braemar circa 1382.
