    Name Meaning

    English (Kent and Sussex): perhaps from Middle English carde ‘card’, an implement for teasing wool for spinning (from medieval Latin cardus) and therefore short for Carder or a metonymic occupational name for a maker of wool carders. Alternatively, from Middle English carde ‘playing card’ (Old French carte), also ‘kind of fabric’ (medieval Latin carda), which could have been a nickname given to a card player or a metonymic occupational name for maker and seller of the fabric.

    Irish: shortened form of McCard .

    French: from a shortened form of the personal name Ricardon, a pet form of Richard .
