    Name Meaning

    Scottish: probably a habitational name from Wardlaw, in Kirkhill, Inverness, which is recorded as Wardelaue in 1202, or perhaps Wardlaw in Ayrs. However, the possibility that the Scottish family is related to the Wardlow family of Wardlow (Derbys) cannot be ruled out. The placenames derive from Old English weard ‘watch’ + hlāw ‘mound, hill’.
