Variant of origins of McAdorey

A Scots Gaelic scholar once told me that there was a variant of the McAdorey name in the Western Isles but that the translation was Son of the Exile. Maybe our "outlaw" ancestors were "exiled" to County Antrim where they were "strangers"!

That would fit with what we US McAdorys have been told, that we were run out of Ireland for misbehaving! I just wish we could find something to verify that!
