MCHARDY Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of Scottish origin, and is the Anglicization of the Gaelic patronymic "Mac C(h)ardaidh", translating as "son of the sloe", and deriving from the older Gaelic word "cardi". The "h" is intrusive and silent in the vernacular. The home county of the Mac Hardies is the Highlands of Aberdeenshire, and the immediate neighbourhood north and south; the clan have long been numerous and influential. The Strathdon branch counted themselves of the Clan Chattan and followed Mac Intosh as their chief.
