Name Meaning

1 English: occupational name for a watchman or guard, from Old English weard ‘guard’ (used as both an agent noun and an abstract noun).2 Irish: reduced form of McWard, an Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac an Bhaird ‘son of the poet’. The surname occurs throughout Ireland, where three different branches of the family are known as professional poets.3 Surname adopted by bearers of the Jewish surname Warshawski, Warshawsky or some other Jewish name bearing some similarity to the English name.
