The word itself derives from Old English hlāford, earlier hlāf-weard, literally ‘loaf-keeper’, since the lord or chief of a clan was responsible for providing food for his dependants.2 Irish: English name adopted as a translation of the main element of Gaelic Ó Tighearnaigh ( see Tierney ) and Mac Thighearnáin ( see McKiernan ).3 French: nickname from Old French l’ord ‘the dirty one’.
