GARVIE Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of Gaelic (Scottish) origin, and is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic "MacGairbhith", composed of the elements "Mac", son of, and the personal name "Garbhith", from "garbh", rough, cruel, and a second element of unknown origin, which has been associated with "bith", fate, (ill)fortune. Traditionally, Gaelic family names are taken from the heads of tribes, revered elders, or from some illustrious warrior, and are usually prefixed by "O", grandson, male descendant, or "M(a)c", denoting "son of".
