ORIGIN OF THE MCADORY NAME(1)

ORIGIN OF THE MCADORY NAME

McADORY seems to originate in the County of Antrim Ireland. There are a
number of families in that area (especially Larne) with a slightly different
spelling of McAdorey. According to Genealogical publications, McADORY is a
"rare County Antrim name.". The name is believed to have come from the
Gaelic name of MacDoreidh which mean Mac (son) en Doreidh (sp?), and it
means Son of the Stranger. Stranger also meaning outlaw which might explain the name change.

The Irish Times cites McAdorey as a fairly rare name : Antrim etc. Ir. Mac an Deoraidh, "son of the stranger". My aunt says the gaelic verson is pronouced "MCAJORRA" in County Antrim - is this true?
In Scots Gaelic, Mac an Deoraidh is translated as "son of the outlaw" and would be connected to the DEWAR clan.
