Name Meaning

Scottish and English: nickname from Old French locart, a Normanno-Picard form of Old French lo(s)chart ‘one who squints, who is cross-eyed’, attested in 13th- and 14th-century Arras (Pas-de-Calais) as Louchard, Lochard, Locard and Locart. It is a derivative of Latin luscus ‘one-eyed’. In France Locard is mostly found in Normandy (especially Calvados) c. 1900, while Louchart is mainly concentrated in Pas-de-Calais at the same time.

Americanized form of German Luckhardt .

History: According to family tradition, Sir Simon Locard held the key to the locked silver casket in which Robert the Bruce's heart was taken to be buried in the Holy Land in 1329. This unverifiable story is no doubt related to the later spelling of the Scottish surname as Lockhart and to the addition of a heart and fetterlock to the family coat of arms (date unknown).
