Maharg Family HistoryRecorded as Mac Harg, Maharg, McHarg, and others as shown below, this is a surname of Scottish origin. It is a developed form of the pre 10th century Old Gaelic "MacGiolla Chairge", meaning the son of the follower or devotee of Cairge. This was a saint's name of great antiquity. Frequently, Gaelic family names are taken from the heads of tribes, revered elders, or some illustrious warrior, but in some instances, clan names indicated devotion to a particular saint or holy man. The Gaelic prefix "Mac" means "son of", and "giolla", also written as "gille", translates literally as "attendant, man-servant, follower", but is used here in the transferred sense of "devotee".
