Meanings and history of the name McLeod: | Edit

McLeod is the Anglicization of the Gaelic "MacLeoid", meaning son (Mac) of Leod, which derives from the Norse personal name "Ljotr" or "Ljot", originally a double stemmed name of which this word was the first element, probably from "ljot-ulf", ugly wolf. -- from surnamedb.com

Generally, the names are considered to be Anglicised forms of the Scottish Gaelic MacLeòid, meaning "son of Leòd". However, in some cases the names can also be Anglicised forms of the Irish Mac Leóid. Another origin for the name, according to late 19th century Irish genealogist John O'Hart, is from the Irish Mac Giolla Mochadha (commonly Anglicised as MacGillicudy) -- from Wikipedia
