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 .
