MCGIRR Family HistoryRecorded as McGerr, McGirr, McGeer, and probably others, this is an early Scottish surname, which is also well recorded in Ireland, and particulary Ulster. It derives from the pre 10th century Gaelic 'Mac an gHeairr' which is believed to translate as 'the son of the short man'. What is certain is that almost all Gaelic surnames whether Scottish or Irish that are not locational, derive from a nickname for the first nameholder or chief. Some of these original names were at best robust and often obscene for modern tastes, so that over the years the meaning has been largely toned down.
