MCGLADE Family HistoryRecorded as MacLeod, MacCloud, and MacGlade (Irish), as well as the short forms McLeod, McCloud and McGlade, this is a Scottish surname which is also well recorded in Ireland. However spelt, all descend from the clan MacLeod, thought to be the lineal descendants of the old Lords of the Isle of Man. Whether this is so or not early in the 18th Century, the clan added the Arms of Man to their coat of arms! The name spellings derive from the pre 10th century Old Gaelic "MacLeoid", meaning the son of Ljotr, the latter being a Norse-Viking personal name probably from "ljot-ulf", meaning ugly wolf! Such names were not unusual.
