McDonald Genealogy & History

The McDonald genealogy shows this name is of Scottish derivation. It can also be spelled as MacDonald and has even taken the form of Mak Donald. This surname is derived from the prefix "Mac", which means a male descendant of, and the given name "Dhomhnuill", which means the ruler of the world. In McDonald family history, many Kings of Scotland, and King David II in particular, resented this meaning and waged a long but unsuccessful war against the family to depose them. The first recorded spelling of the family name is probably that of a Therthelnac MakDonenalde, which appears on a charter at Lesmore written in 1251.
