McCarthy Genealogy & History

McCarthy family history shows that this is an Irish surname that is derived from the Gaelic "Mac Carthaigh", which means son of the loving one. It is possible that this name was given as an ironic nickname, because many of these clan members were well-known for fighting in territorial disputes. McCarthy genealogy gives many alternative spellings, including MacCarthy, Mccarty, and MacCarty. Well-known people with this surname include the infamous Senator Joseph McCarthy who ruined thousands of lives during the 1950s when he was the chair of the House Un-American Activities Committee, responsible for the Communist "witch hunts" that came to be known as the McCarthy Hearings.
