It may be Gaelic Irish, and when from Londonderry where most are to be found, is generally accepted as being ultimately of Scottish origins from McNaught. However some researchers claim this is not so, and that it is from O' Dowd, a purely Irish name. The second is English and occupational for a farmer or merchant of nuts from the Olde English 'cnut' .
