    Name Meaning

    Scottish: habitational name from any of the places called Calder in Midlothian and Caithness, or Cawdor in Nairnshire.

    English: perhaps a habitational name from Calder in Cumbria, named from the river on which it stands (probably a British name, from Welsh caled ‘hard, violent’ + dwfr ‘water, stream’). However, the modern surname in England seems to be of Scottish origin, rather than from the Cumbrian placename.
